Former Rep. Mike Rogers’ Florida Voter Registration Canceled as Senate Campaign Heats Up

More than nine months after registering to vote in Michigan, former U.S. Representative Mike Rogers—a Republican contender for the forthcoming U.S. Senate seat in Michigan—has officially been removed off Florida’s voter records.

Due to inconsistencies in his stated living arrangements, critics began to question Rogers’ residency earlier this year and called him a carpetbagger. Although Rogers was born and reared in Livingston County, he had moved to a large $1.7 million property in Cape Coral, Florida.

Rogers had originally registered to vote at his home in Florida, but after declaring his candidacy for the Senate, he asked to be taken off the voter rolls. Officials in Lee County verified his removal, despite the fact that Florida’s online voter database still showed him as active.

Rogers registered to vote in Genoa Township, which is close to Brighton, in August 2023. His campaign made it clear that he is momentarily residing with relatives while a new house is built on land he bought in White Lake Township.

With the support of former President Donald Trump, Rogers will have to contend with a tough primary field that includes former Representative Justin Amash, doctor Sherry O Donnell, and businessman Sandy Pensler. Meanwhile, actress Hill Harper, businessman Nasser Beydoun, and U.S. Representative Elissa Slotkin are among the Democratic competitors.
