Rogers: “We still need strong conservative leadership in Washington and that’s why I’m putting my support behind Mike Bishop.”
Brighton, MI – The Mike Bishop for Congress campaign announced today its latest ad featuring Congressman Mike Rogers. Mike Rogers currently represents Michigan’s 8th Congressional District and endorsed Mike Bishop for Congress earlier this year. In the ad, Rogers states, “You know, all too often people in Washington are more concerned about getting re-elected than keeping promises they made to voters back home. Mike Bishop is different. He’ll stick to his principles and stand up for us in Washington.”
In a recent email to supporters Congressman Mike Rogers said, “ Earlier this year, I endorsed Mike Bishop for this Congressional seat when I decided not to seek re-election. Why? I will be proud to live in this district knowing that my Congressman is Mike Bishop. And, there’s a reason for that,” Rogers continued. “Mike Bishop is a strong, conservative leader who spent years fighting the Jennifer Granholm liberal agenda while passing balanced, all-cuts budgets and reducing the size of government in Lansing. Ranked as the Most Conservative Member of the Senate in 2010, I’m confident Mike Bishop will continue my fight to end Obamacare, reduce the deficit and debt and work with others to reduce the size and scope of government in Washington. That’s the kind of Congressman I want to have represent me.”

“I am proud and humbled to have the endorsement of Congressman Mike Rogers,” said Mike Bishop. “I want to personally thank him for his endorsement and for his service to our state and our country. I want to assure him, and all the residents of the 8th District, that I will continue to lead with conservative principles to fight against Obamacare, for lower spending in Washington and to fight to bring down the deficit and debt in our federal budget.”
In a recent poll, commissioned by the Detroit Free Press and WXYZ and performed by EPIC MRA, Mike Bishop held a commanding double digit lead over Tom McMillin with only two weeks to go before the August Primary election. The poll shows Bishop up 45% – 33% over McMillin; a 12 percentage point lead among voters in the 8th District. The lead surges to 52% – 32% or 20 percentage points ahead when voters learn about the endorsement of Mike Bishop by current 8th Congressional District Congressman Mike Rogers.
