Glen Menze has announced that he will challenge Collin Peterson for the 7th District Congressional seat in Minnesota.
Menze, an accountant and former farmer, supports reducing the size of the federal government and focusing on job creation policies that include tax breaks for businesses and job training programs that will help the workforce find job opportunities and businesses compete in global markets.
Menze said, “Peterson no longer represents the interests of the citizens of our district. I will vote against any legalization that will cost jobs in our district like the cap-and-trade bill Peterson supported and voted for recently.”
Menze said he supports a free enterprise system that will provide jobs and a brighter future for children.
“Congress has not put jobs at the top of their list but instead has been distracted by climate change and health care bills, both job killers in our district,” he said.
Menze said he is pro-life and supports the Second Amendment. He received more than 87,000 votes in his 2008 run for Peterson’s position.
