Who’s running for U.S. Senate in Michigan: Former Rep Mike Rogers jumps in

LANSING — Nine years after he left elected office, former U.S. Rep. Mike Rogers is joining a growing field of candidates running to replace retiring U.S. Sen. Debbie Stabenow.

Rogers, a Republican from Livingston County who represented Michigan’s 8th Congressional District in the U.S. House through 2014, announced his new Senate campaign Wednesday in an online video.

“I thought I put politics behind me, but like you, I know something is broken,” Rogers said. “America under (President Joe) Biden and his cronies is going in the wrong direction.”
