Rep Colin Peterson running again – broadband is hot topic

Minneapolis Star Tribune reports on Rep Peterson’s decision to seek re-election. Broadband makes his short list of focal points…

The 15-term congressman was first elected in 1990 and chairs the House Agriculture Committee. On Friday, he said that in addition to agriculture, he wanted to focus on “helping our rural health care facilities, lowering interest rates on student loan debt, taking care of our veterans, and making sure we have good roads and good broadband access across rural Minnesota.”
