U.S. Rep. Mike Rogers of Michigan Won’t Seek Re-Election
Republican Congressman Mike Rogers has said he won’t seek re-election. According to NBC 25, the seven-term congressman made the announcement this morning during his appearance on a Detroit radio show. Rogers said he’ll serve out the end of his term and then start a national radio program.
Just last year, Rogers chose not to run for retiring U.S. Senator Carl Levin’s seat. Rogers, who chairs the House Intelligence Committee, said the best way for him to make a difference in Washington was to continue serving in the House.
The 50-year-old Rogers is a former FBI agent and has been in the House since 2001. Prior to that he served in the Michigan Senate.
