"My heart and my creative energies are committed to Lansing and its continued growth."

Mayor Virg Bernero

Ending days of speculation, about the possibility of his running, Mayor Virg Bernero announced on his Facebook page that he will not be seeking election to Michigan's 8th Congressional District.

Congressman Mike Rogers surprised many across the state last week when he announced on WJR-Radio that he would not be running for re-election to the seat that he has held since 2001.

Bernero said "So much is broken about Washington that it is tempting for me to contemplate a future trying to fix it.

But my heart and my creative energies are committed to Lansing and its continued growth.

I will not seek the open 8th district congressional seat this year. Many thanks to each of my supporters who weighed in on this matter."
