Byberg Announces Candidacy 23 May 12

Lee Byberg, Republican-endorsed candidate for Congress in Minnesota’s 7th district, has officially filed for office at the Secretary of State’s office.

Byberg is taking a second run at the seat held by incumbent Congressman Collin Peterson, who has held the office for more than 20 years.

Byberg says he’s is running on a platform of repealing Obamacare, balancing the federal budget, reducing the federal debt, and cutting burdensome regulations. He has also been critical of Peterson’s recent dairy policy proposals, which Byberg says favor milk producers outside the Midwest.
