Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate Mike Rogers says technically, he believes he is the first and only candidate to qualify for the ballot so far, and he has started collecting endorsements from what he calls a key group of professionals: law enforcement.
Rogers spoke with News 8 Political Reporter Rick Albin earlier this week while he was in Grand Rapids.
“The good news for us is that in eight weeks when we announced, eight weeks later we had 30,000 signatures in the box ready to go. That’s really never been done,” Rogers said. “And that tells us, candidly, we’re the only candidate qualified to be on the ballot today — really, really important.”
