MN-07; Peterson faces fight of his career in deep-red Minnesota district

Rep. Collin Peterson (D-Minn.) faces the toughest reelection fight of his career as he looks to begin a fourth decade in Congress as the rare anti-abortion, pro-gun Democrat, representing a sprawling rural district that went for President Trump by 30 points in 2016.

Peterson, one of the founding members of the centrist Blue Dog Democrats, has survived for 15 terms in his deep-red Western Minnesota district by being willing to break with his party on key issues, including Trumpís impeachment.

A close ally of Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), Peterson is chairman of the House Agriculture Committee ó a huge draw for his constituents in a district where farmers grow sugar beets, wild rice, potatoes, corn and soybeans.

Peterson campaigns across the massive district, which stretches from the Canadian border almost down to Iowa, by piloting his own Beechcraft single engine airplane.

1. Collin Peterson is from the district that went for Trump by the widest margin in MN. He votes

against the Dems about a quarter of the time when votes come up. He's generally very well liked in the district, which runs a little moderate for all the red that's there. He'll get reelected as long as he wants.

2. And his GOP

opponent is a real throw back. True Tea Party hate spewing POS. As the Niece mentioned,who lives in the 7 th,hundreds of Fisbach Signs all over the place.

Collin has not had to run a real Campaign for years. He usually calls it in. Just makes calls to the Pork Producers head Honcho as well as the Beet Growers big Wheel and the Corn Growers Associations President and not forgetting the Soy Bean Growers wanabe king. Hey,who has been taking care of your Boy's. That has been his campaign for many a year.
