Romney picks Rep. Mike Rogers as Alabama co-chair
MONTGOMERY, Ala. - Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney has named U.S. Rep. Mike Rogers as co-chair of his presidential exploratory committee in Alabama.
Romney's announcement Tuesday came two weeks after he announced that State Treasurer Kay Ivey would be chair of the panel.
Rogers, a Republican from Saks in east Alabama, is in his third term in the U.S. House. He previously served eight years in the Alabama House, where he was minority leader.
Romney is scheduled to be in Montgomery on Feb. 9 to address the State Republican Executive Committee.
"Gov. Romney's message of lowering taxes, promoting traditional values, and providing for a strong national defense resonate deeply with the people of Alabama," Rogers, R-Saks, said in a statement.
