Though House Agriculture Committee chairman Collin Peterson (D-Detroit Lakes) continues to remain coy about his re-election plans as always, it is presumed he will seek re-election for a 16th term next year. Officially, Rep. Peterson says he will make a final decision in January or February. But, he has already filed a 2020 campaign committee with the Federal Election Commission and is actively raising money.
His 7th District of Minnesota is an interesting seat. This is the most Republican and pro-Trump district (Trump ’16: 61.8%) in the country that elects a Democrat to the US House. It will almost assuredly go Republican if Mr. Peterson decides to retire.
