Peterson endorsed for re-election in 7th Congressional District


MAHNOMEN -- U.S. Rep. Collin Peterson was endorsed Saturday at the 7th Congressional District DFL Convention in Mahnomen.

More than 160 delegates attended the convention at the Shooting Star event center.

Peterson was endorsed on a voice vote majority that was "pretty overwhelming," said newly elected associate chair Ione Yates of Clarissa. Peterson has served in Congress since 1990 and is a former chairman of the House Agriculture Committee.
