Mike Rogers Early life, education, and law enforcement career

Rogers was born in Livingston County, Michigan. His parents are Joyce A. and John C. Rogers. He graduated from Adrian College, Adrian, Michigan in 1985, from which he earned a bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice and Sociology, and served in the United States Army from 1985 to 1989. He worked as a Special Agent with the Federal Bureau of Investigation in its Chicago office, specializing in organized crime and public corruption, 1989–1994.

Mike Rogers Committee assignments

U.S. House of Representatives
Elections

  • United States House of Representatives elections in Michigan, 2006
  • United States House of Representatives elections in Michigan, 2008
  • United States House of Representatives elections in Michigan, 2010
  • United States House of Representatives elections in Michigan, 2012

He was elected as a Republican from the 8th District of Michigan to the United States House of Representatives in one of the nation’s closest congressional races of 2000. He defeated Democratic State Senator Dianne Byrum by 111 votes to win the District 8 seat left open by Debbie Stabenow. However, he was reelected six times, in a newly reconfigured – and more Republican-leaning – district with almost no difficulty. The said district was created as a result of the 2000 decennial census. The Michigan Legislature removed portions of Genesee and Washtenaw Counties and replaced them with the most Republican areas of Oakland County. Congressman Rogers usually ran up large margins in the areas of the district outside heavily Democratic Lansing, the district’s largest city.
