DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — A former Michigan congressman is leading an effort to promote more foreign policy discussion among Republican presidential hopefuls.

Mike Rogers, who hosts a nationally syndicated radio program, is unveiling a plan Thursday to boost foreign policy conversation in advance of the 2016 election. Rogers is leading a group called Americans for Peace, Prosperity and Security, which held a kickoff event in Des Moines. The organization aims to build support among Iowa voters and hold candidate events, including a forum in the fall.

Rogers plans to organize similar programs in New Hampshire and South Carolina.

Rogers served in the U.S. House for 14 years before retiring at the end of last year. He was chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.
