Marquette, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – U.S. Congressman Mike Rogers of Michigan has announced he’s not running for re-election and is getting out of elective politics.

Rogers, whose profile has risen significantly as chairman of the U.S. House Intelligence Committee, made the announcement this morning.

Reports say he will be hosting a national show syndicated by Cumulus Media.

The show will begin next January.

The announcement has set off a major buzz in Michigan politics, and three possible candidates who could surface in the next election could be Lansing Mayor Virg Bernero, a Democrat, Michigan House Democrat Sam Singh, and Michigan House Republican Bill Rogers, the congressman’s brother.
