Lansing, MI (AP)-Republican U.S. Rep. Mike Rogers of Brighton appears set to run unopposed in the November election for Congress.
A potential Democratic challenger ended his campaign Wednesday. Kande Ngalamulume (KAHN'-dee GAH-lah-mou-lou-may) says in a statement there doesn't appear to be enough interest within the political establishment and many constituents in the district to replace Rogers in Congress.
Neither Rogers or Ngalamulume was to face an opponent in the August primary.
Rogers was first elected to Congress in 2000 representing Michigan's 8th district. Rogers had a huge fundraising advantage in the race.
The district covers Ingham, Clinton and Livingston counties and parts of Shiawassee and Oakland counties.
