Politico reports Minnesota 7th District Congressman Collin Peterson will announce soon that he’ll run for a 16th term in the U-S House. The Democrat’s expected decision will set up a fierce battle with Republicans, who are trying to grab a seat in a district that’s grown more conservative. The GOP’s candidate will likely be former state Senator and Lieutenant Governor Michelle Fischbach. She’s already received the endorsement of President Trump, who won the 7th District by 31 points in 2016. Congressman Peterson — arguably the most powerful member of Minnesota’s congressional delegation — chairs the U-S House Agriculture Committee. He represents the most Republican district in the U-S that’s held by a Democrat.
