Hoffman announced the run Friday, Feb. 24 just days after redistricting redrew boundary lines that would have put her in the same district as fellow Republican Bill Ingebrigtsen of Alexandria.

Hoffman will first have to knock out Lee Byberg, a Willmar Republican who is also seeking Peterson's seat.
