Rogers, first elected in 1980, is the longest serving Kentucky Republican to hold federal office, Rogers has risen to become the third highest-ranking Republican on the House Appropriations Committee. He has held the chair on three different subcommittees: Commerce, Justice, State and the Judiciary from 1995 to 2000; Transportation from 2001 to 2002; and Homeland Security from 2003 to 2006. Since 2007, he has remained the Homeland Security subcommittee’s ranking member.

Rogers hasn’t shied away from bringing billions in federal earmarks to Kentucky, leading the Lexington Herald Leader to dub him the “Prince of Pork.”
