Congressman Peterson Not Ready to Announce Re-election Intentions


(Learfield News Service) With Republicans lining up to challenge him next year, Congressman Collin Peterson says he’s still deciding whether he’ll run for another term.

The Democrat is 75 and was first elected to the House in 1991.

He says he will make his decision after the first of the year. He says, “I don’t want this campaign to start too quick. Republicans got five people running against each other. They’ve got their own problems to sort out. I think there is one of the candidates that are kind of anointed by the leadership. My sense these other candidates are not going to give up.”

Peterson also said he has no regrets about his vote not to push the impeachment process along. He says he thinks most people in his district are tired of the debate and it only serves to further divide the country.

The Democrat says he hasn’t decided how he would vote if impeachment comes to a vote in the House.
