HOWELL, Mich. — House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers, a Republican, said he's seriously considering running for Michigan's Senate seat that Democrat Carl Levin is vacating next year.

The 78-year-old Levin announced on Thursday that he wouldn't run again when his term expires in 2014.

Rogers told the Detroit Free Press hat he's “giving the Senate race serious consideration.”

The 49-year-old ex-FBI agent has served in Congress since 2001.

Other Republicans considering running include ex-Secretary of State Terri Lynn Land and U.S. Rep. Justin Amash.

On the Democratic side of the aisle, Rep. Gary Peters of Bloomfield Township is pondering a possible run.
