Former Rep. Mike Rogers secured another high-profile endorsement from a sitting senator as the Army veteran and former House Republican vies for the competitive Michigan Senate seat that could determine the balance of power in the upper chamber next year.
Sen. Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV) endorsed Rogers in the GOP primary, marking Rogers’s fourth endorsement from a sitting senator since announcing his Senate run earlier this year. Sens. Katie Britt (R-AL) and Joni Ernst (R-IA) offered their endorsements to Rogers last week, following the backing of National Republican Senatorial Committee Chairman Steve Daines, who threw his support behind Rogers when he announced his campaign in September.
“It’s my honor to endorse Mike Rogers of Michigan for the U.S. Senate,” Capito said in a statement. “Mike is a passionate leader who’s dedicated his life to serving our great country in the Army, FBI, and in Congress where I had the pleasure of working with him to further our shared conservative values. Mike’s unmatched national security experience, commitment to holding China accountable, and dedication to the American people will make him a tremendous U.S. Senator.”
