Michael J. "Mike" Rogers (b. June 2, 1963, in Livingston County, Michigan) is a Republican member of the U.S. House of Representatives representing Michigan's 8th congressional district. Rogers was first elected to the House in 2000.

Rogers most recently won re-election in 2012. He defeated Lance Enderle (D), Daniel Goebel (L) and Preston Brooks (I) in the general election on November 6, 2012.

Rogers began his political career in the Michigan State Senate, where he served from 1995 to 2000.

Despite speculation that Rogers would run for the open Senate seat currently occupied by Sen. Carl Levin, who is among the Congressional members who have announced their decision to not run in 2014, Rogers announced on June 14, 2013, that he would instead run for re-election to his U.S. House seat. In a letter to supporters he stated, "For me, the significance and depth of the impact I can make on my constituent’s behalf far outweighs the perceived importance of any title I might hold."[1]

Based on analysis of multiple outside rankings, Rogers is an average Republican member of Congress, meaning he will vote with the Republican Party on the majority of bills.
