Mike Rogers Considering Michigan Senate Race

+

Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Mich. (Chet Susslin)()

Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Mich., is adding his name to the list of possible Republican contenders for the Wolverine State's open-seat Senate race in 2014. "I am giving the Senate race serious consideration," he said in a statement.

The House Intelligence Committee Chair is considered a top-tier GOP candidate, but some have doubted his interest in the race due to his high-ranking position in the lower chamber. A number of big names on the Republican side have already taken their names out of the running following Sen. Carl Levin's Thursday announcement that he would not seek re-election. Rep. Candice Miller, R-Mich., Attorney General Bill Schuette and Lt. Gov. Brian Calley all announced they wouldn't be seeking the seat.

Meanwhile, attorney Scott Romney, the older brother of GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney, said he's considering a bid. Former Michigan GOP Chair Saul Anuzis and former Secretary of State Terri Lynn Land also expressed interest.

On the Democratic side, Rep. Gary Peters, D-Mich., dominated early headlines and said he is "very interested" in the race. Other potential contenders include former Rep. Mark Schauer and longtime activist Debbie Dingell, the wife of Rep. John Dingell, D-Mich.
