Collin Peterson says he'll seek re-election
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.
