Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Brighton) and Rep. Tim Walberg (R-Tipton) voted against a U.S. House resolution opposing President Bush's troop "surge."

It ultimately passed, 246 to 182.

Rogers represents Ingham and Clinton counties, as well as Livingston County and part of Shiawassee County. Walberg represents Eaton, Jackson and Hillsdale counties.

As a whole, Michigan's delegation was split on the issue. Seven representatives voted for the measure; eight voted against it. The vote was almost entirely along party lines.

Rep. Fred Upton, who represents southwest Michigan, was the only Michigan representative to break with his party. The Republican voted in favor of the resolution.
