US Rep. Mike Rogers of Mich. won't run for Senate

HOWELL, Mich. (AP) -

U.S. Rep. Mike Rogers says he will not run for the U.S. Senate in Michigan next year.

The seventh-term Howell Republican made the announcement Friday. He says in a note to supporters that the best way for him to have a direct impact is to stay in the House.

Democratic U.S. Sen. Carl Levin announced in March that he would not run for a seventh six-year term in 2014. U.S. Rep. Gary Peters is running for the Democratic nomination. Former Michigan Secretary of State Terri Lynn Land is the only candidate so far running on the Republican side.

The 50-year-old Rogers' decision was not a surprise. He has become of high-profile House member as chairman of its Intelligence Committee.
