Filed under: U.P. News Updates |

U.P._News_UpdateMARQUETTE, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – Congressman Mike Rogers (R-Mich) of Howell has announced he will not be running for U.S. Senate.

Following much speculation in recent months regarding his political future, Rogers announced, in a statement out today, that he will not seek the soon-to-open seat being vacated by the retiring Democrat Carl Levin.

Rogers said he’s humbled by the encouragement, but has determined the best way for him to have a direct impact on his constituents and the nation is to remain in the House of Representatives.

So far, only Representative Gary Peters (D-Mich) and former Michigan Republican Secretary of State Terri Lynn Land have announced intentions to run for the seat in the November 2014 election.
