Peterson Gets DFL Endorsement 30 Apr 18

Collin Peterson received the Democratic-Farmer-Labor endorsement for Minnesota’s 7th District seat in Congress.

Running for his 15th term in the House of Representatives, Peterson received the endorsement during the DFL 7th District Convention held in Willmar over the weekend.

The West Central Tribune reports Peterson is expected to face Republicans Dave Hughes or Matt Prosch.

Peterson defeated Hughes 53 to 47 percent in 2016.

State Rep. Tim Miller, R-Prinsburg, ceased his race for Congress in December and is seeking his re-election to the Minnesota House 17A seat.

The Congressional District 7 GOP Convention is scheduled May 18-19 at Thumper Pond Resort in Ottertail.
