U.S. Rep. Collin Peterson to announce Monday whether he'll seek 13th term

MOORHEAD – Longtime U.S. Rep. Collin Peterson will be in Moorhead on Monday to announce his plans for the coming election.

Peterson, a Democrat representing Minnesota’s 7th District, which includes Moorhead and Clay County, will speak at the Moorhead Center Mall atrium at 10 a.m. Monday, according to a press release.

Peterson has served 24 years in the House and has thus far not indicated whether or not he’ll seek his 13th term in November.

The release said Peterson would speak about a “number of issues” including his plans for this year’s election, but it did not specify Peterson’s plans.

Republican Torrey Westrom, a state senator from Elbow Lake, has already announced his plans to run for the U.S. House seat.
