Mike Rogers Receives Endorsement from Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton in Michigan Senate Race

In an exclusive report, the Daily Caller News Foundation has learned that Republican Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton has announced his endorsement of former GOP Representative Mike Rogers for the open Senate seat in Michigan.

Rogers, a candidate recruited by the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC), is leading the pack in the GOP primary and is expected to go head-to-head with Democratic Rep. Elissa Slotkin in the upcoming November election.

In a press release exclusively shared with the DCNF, Cotton expressed his support for Rogers, aligning himself with former President Donald Trump. He emphasized that Rogers would be a valuable ally in combating the Chinese threat in the Senate.

As the Trump trial dominates the media’s attention, Hunter Biden may be facing the possibility of being charged with multiple felonies.

“China poses the greatest threat to our nation, and it is crucial that we have leaders like Mike Rogers, a fellow Army veteran, in the U.S. Senate to counter them,” declared Cotton in a statement. “Throughout his career, Mike has dedicated himself to combating China’s economic and military aggressions and has been at the forefront of exposing their attempts to undermine our security. I am honored to join President Trump in endorsing Mike Rogers as Michigan’s future U.S. Senator.”

Several GOP senators have thrown their support behind Rogers, including Steve Daines of Montana, John Barrasso of Wyoming, Katie Britt of Alabama, Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia, Joni Ernst of Iowa, and John Kennedy of Louisiana, according to the campaign.

Republican Michigan Representatives Jack Bergman, Lisa McClain, and Tim Walberg have thrown their support behind Rogers. Additionally, former Representative Candice Miller and former Detroit Police Chief James Craig have also endorsed him.

Craig wasted no time in endorsing Rogers after he decided to suspend his own Senate campaign in mid-February to explore the possibility of running for mayor in Detroit in 2025. Former GOP Representative Peter Meijer withdrew his candidacy on April 26, stating that “the dynamics of the race have undergone significant changes.”

Three individuals from Michigan are facing federal charges for their alleged involvement in a fire incident at Isle Royale National Park.

Justin Amash, a former congressman, is currently running in the GOP primary for the open seat on August 6. Alongside him, there are other candidates such as businessman Sandy Pensler, physician Sherry O’Donnell, and several lesser-known candidates. It is worth noting that in 2019, Amash departed from the Republican Party and cast a vote in favor of impeaching Trump.

According to a survey conducted by Emerson College on May 3, registered Republican voters showed the highest support for Rogers at 32%. Following behind were Amash at 8%, Pensler at 3%, and O’Donnell at 2%. Interestingly, the same pollster revealed that Slotkin was only two points ahead of Rogers, with 19% of voters still undecided.
