State. Rep. Tim Miller (R-Prinsburg), who had been forecast as a legitimate challenger to veteran Minnesota Rep. Collin Peterson (D-Detroit Lakes), withdrew from the congressional challenge yesterday citing early fundraising difficulties. He will instead seek re-election to the state House. The move leaves 2016 challenger David Hughes and businessman Matt Prosch as announced Republican candidates. Mr. Hughes held Rep. Peterson to a 52-47% victory, but spent just under $20,000 in doing so. Though the 7th performed as the strongest Republican district in Minnesota for the 2016 presidential contest, Mr. Peterson has still been re-elected here 13 consecutive times after initially winning in 1990.
