(WLNS) – Former Congressman Mike Rogers made a lot of people stop and take a second look when he said he was going to make an announcement today in Iowa.
Some political observers began to speculate Rogers was planning a run for the White House.
But, according to our media partners at WHMI, sources are indicating today’s announcement will not involve a run by the Howell Republican, who left Congress for a stint in talk radio, but instead an opportunity to shape the debate among GOP contenders.
The Hill, a Washington D.C.-based publication, reports that Rogers will announce that he is organizing a foreign policy forum for 2016 White House contenders that will take place in Iowa later this year.
Rogers’ announcement is set this afternoon in the Iowa State Capitol, and will include a press conference.
