Committee: Peterson Won Every County, More Raw Votes, in Primary
Aug. 13, 2020 – Following the primary victory to put Rep. Collin Peterson, MN07, back on the fall ballot, the Committee for Stronger Rural Communities issued the following statement from Kelly Erickson, chairman of the CSRC Steering Committee:
“With nearly $900,000 raised to date, we stand ready to spend whatever it takes to help Rep. Collin Peterson continue to serve the people of Minnesota’s 7th Congressional District. We are 100 percent behind Rep. Peterson because of his effective record on farm policy and his independent leadership. He does what is best for the families, the farms and the small businesses in the 7th Congressional District. We know his opponents will throw everything they can at him, but it is encouraging to see he won every county in the primary, and ended the night with a bigger raw vote total than the opponent he will face in the fall.”
