In the interest of clarity, I've attached the original 2d drawing I'm working with. I've started from scratch with both of the suggested solution and can't seem to get where I need to be.

Essentially the 2D "X" axis needs to become Z and the original Y axis needs to become X

In working with Phil's suggestion to rotate around the X axis, I can't change the setting. It's showing rotation Axis as Z, and it's grayed out and I can't change it. (I just discovered I should have been in 3D mode. Then I could change the Rotation Axis)
