InfoMike Rogers is a fifth generation East Alabamian. He is a conservative, a Christian, the father of three and married to his wife, Beth, for over 30 years.

Mike grew up in Calhoun County, Alabama, in the small mill village of Blue Mountain. His mother worked in the local textile mill and his father was a firefighter. Mike learned the values of family, hard work and sacrifice from his parents.

Since first elected in 2002, Mike has been known for his tireless advocacy for the people and interests of Alabama’s Third Congressional District. He currently serves on the Agriculture Committee, the Armed Services Committee and the Homeland Security Committee, all vital to Alabama’s interests. Nationally, he has built a reputation as a recognized leader on key national security issues.

As a senior member of the Armed Services Committee, Mike was selected to serve as Chairman of the Subcommittee on Strategic Forces. The Subcommittee deals with missile defense and nuclear weapons issues. These are vital issues important to America’s national security and Alabama’s economy, especially now as our nation faces nuclear and ballistic missile threats from North Korea and Iran. Mike is an ardent proponent of our nation’s missile defense system to protect the United States and our key allies like Israel, and is consistently at odds with the Obama Administration over its positions on defense policy.

East Alabama is home to the Anniston Army Depot, Fort Benning, and Maxwell-Gunter Air Force Base. To help advocate for these installations, Mike also serves on the Armed Services Readiness Subcommittee which has jurisdiction over military readiness, maintenance and logistics. The Readiness Subcommittee oversees the largest account in the Department of Defense’s budget. From this position, Mike works tirelessly to ensure our warfighters have the very best equipment, which includes the hard work done at the Anniston Army Depot, known as the ‘Pit Crew of America’s Warfighters.’

Agriculture is the number one sector of Alabama’s economy with over $1 billion in exports a year. From small family farms to leading research institutions like Auburn University and Tuskegee University, the Third Congressional District plays a key role in Alabama’s agriculture economy. Mike is well positioned as a senior member of the Agriculture Committee to play a key role in this year’s Farm Bill and help look out for what’s important to Alabama.

Mike also serves on the Committee on Homeland Security. In his effort to streamline the Department, Mike has been critical of the Transportation Security Administration’s intrusive screening methods, wasteful spending and failure to adopt a more risk-based approach. Mike has made securing our borders a key part of the Committee’s agenda and works continuously to help improve FEMA’s disaster response. Ensuring rural first responders are treated fairly by Washington is one of Mike’s top priorities, as is his strong advocacy for the Center for Domestic Preparedness located in Anniston, Alabama.

Mike’s service on these three Committees uniquely blends Alabama’s strengths into national priorities. He believes his work in Congress closely follows the old adage, “the government that governs best, governs least.” He continues to vote in favor of legislation that helps cut wasteful spending, balance the budget and reform the tax code in order to grow our economy and create jobs. Mike is a steadfast defender of the right to life and our Second Amendment rights.

Mike graduated from Saks High School and earned both his undergraduate degree in Political Science and Masters of Public Administration at Jacksonville State University. Later he graduated with honors from the Birmingham School of Law. He was a practicing attorney and is a small business owner in Calhoun County.
