FBI agents want Rep. Rogers to be bureau director

AP Wire • Jul 21, 2015 at 12:35 PM

U.S. Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Brighton, worked as an FBI agent before being elected to the Michigan Senate and later to Congress.

Rogers is considering whether to run for the U.S. Senate seat opening with Democrat Carl Levin's retirement.

The FBI Agents Association on Monday endorsed Rogers to replace FBI Director Robert Mueller, whose 10-year term was extended by Congress for two years and ends in September. The association said Rogers is respected on both sides of the aisle and his background as a special agent "sets him apart."

Rogers, 49, chairs the House Intelligence Committee. He said he's honored and humbled by the endorsement.
