Seventh District Congressman Collin Peterson could have a formidable Republican challenger in 2020, as former Lieutenant Governor Michelle Fischbach announces she’s running for Congress. The former state senator from Paynesville says western Minnesota voters need someone who represents their values and fights for them in Congress:

“Collin Peterson is not doing that any more by supporting the Pelosi agenda.”

Minnesota Democratic Party Chairman Ken Martin responds Peterson doesn’t toe the party line:

“People in western Minnesota know that. I’m not sure how they’re gonna take to a hard-core ideologue like Michelle Fischbach.”

The election is a year from November.
