LANSING — As Mike Rogers heads to Mackinac Island for the Michigan GOP’s 35th biennial Republican Leadership Conference, Michigan Republicans’ “contentious” primary and “Senate showdown” will be on full display with members of his own party attacking Rogers as a “deep state operative” and the “last choice” in Michigan’s Republican Senate primary.
Here’s what Michigan Republicans are saying about Mike Rogers:
Republicans are clear about their dislike for Mike Rogers: Republican campaign strategist John Yob said Rogers is his “last choice” in the Michigan Senate race, and Grace Chong, the CFO/COO of Steve Bannon’s WarRoom said, “Never Never Never Mike Rogers.”
Republican operative and former Trump staffer Adam Veniotte called Rogers a “deep state operative” whose campaign “should be DOA” (dead on arrival). Caroline Wren, a former top fundraiser for the Trump campaign, said Rogers is “the epitome of Deep State” and said she “can’t imagine a worse or more dangerous ‘Republican’ candidate for Senate than Mike Rogers.”
Republicans are also criticizing Rogers for not voting in Michigan in 2022: citing his statement saying: “I did not vote in Michigan. I had moved to Florida because of some business opportunities down there.”
