US Rep. Rogers of Michigan won't seek re-election

Posted: Updated:
DETROIT (AP) -  Seven-term Republican Congressman Mike Rogers of Michigan says he won't seek re-election.
 
 The chairman of the House Intelligence Committee announced his plans on Friday morning during an interview on Detroit radio station WJR-AM. He says he'll serve out the end of his term and plans to start a national radio program.
 
 Last year, Rogers had said he would not run for the U.S. Senate in Michigan this year, saying the best way for him to make a difference in Washington is staying in the House.
 
 The 50-year-old former FBI agent has a prominent role on American national security issues, being invited regularly to talk about them on TV.
 
 Rogers has been in the House since 2001. He previously was a state senator from 1995 to 2000.
