Mike Rogers Won’t Rule Out 2016 Run

The Republican Congressman and House Intelligence Committee chairman is stepping down from politics at the end of this year to host a talk-radio show focusing on national-security issues

House Intelligence Committee chairman Mike Rogers, the Republican from Michigan, is stepping down from politics for now, but he hasn’t ruled out a 2016 bid for President.

Rogers is giving up his seat in Congress at the end of the year to host a talk-radio show focusing on national-security issues. In a Sunday interview with Rogers, Fox News’ Chris Wallace mentioned that President Ronald Reagan had a radio gig before running for the White House.

“Ronald Reagan used his platform on radio to run for President of the United States? I had no idea, Chris,” replied Rogers with a coy, joking smile. “I’m going to take it where it goes.”

Rogers went on to say he hopes his future in national radio will help him “move the needle” on policy debate.
