Hoffman announces run for U.S. House

Minnesota Senator Gretchen Hoffman, R-Vergas, will run for the U.S. House in the 7th Congressional District against long-time incumbent Collin Peterson, a Democrat from Detroit Lakes.

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.
