Peterson endorsement was a disappointment

The Forum’s Oct. 21 endorsement of Rep. Collin Peterson, D-Minn., was a disappointment. Peterson’s vote for cap and trade, his opposition to repealing Obamacare, which provides for taxpayer-funded abortions, and his refusal to meet his constituents in an open forum to hear their concerns illustrate his indifference to the wishes of his constituents in Minnesota’s 7th District.

Peterson’s support for the farm bill, which is 83 percent pork, and the latest stimulus bill belies his concern over the national deficit and debt, which has increased 400 percent during his 20 years in Congress.

It’s time for new representation in Minnesota District 7. Lee Byberg is a principled leader with real concern for the direction of our country. He understands that the path our government is currently taking is unsustainable and that returning to our founding principles is vital to preserving the American dream. On Tuesday, choose the American dream: vote Byberg.
