Democratic Representative Collin Peterson said Tuesday he will run for re-election in 2010, denouncing rumors that he might retire.

"I'm running for re-election and anyone who knows me knows that what I'm doing now is what I've always done," Peterson said in a statement.


Peterson represents Minnesota's 7th District, which includes most of western Minnesota.

He said he already filed his paperwork and plans to make an official announcement in February.
