Rogers Hosts GOP Event for Freshmen and PACs

Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Mich.) is kicking off his tenure as incumbent retention chairman for the National Republican Congressional Committee by hosting a “meet and greet” Thursday night for freshman GOP Members and more than 150 political action committees, according to a source familiar with the event.

No money will be raised at the event, and most or all of the Republican freshmen are expected to attend.

Rogers was tapped to head the incumbent retention efforts by NRCC Chairman Pete Sessions (Texas). He is charged with bringing back all of the 178 House Republicans who seek re-election in the 2010 cycle.

“Mike Rogers has wasted no time in his new post as the incumbent retention chairman,” NRCC Communications Director Ken Spain said. “He’s the ultimate team player who happens to know how to win tough races.”
