Minnesota Republicans have endorsed Lee Byberg to challenge longtime Democratic U.S. Rep. Collin Peterson in the Seventh Congressional District.
The party on Saturday called Byberg a “principled conservative leader” who will work hard to rein in out-of-control government spending.
Byberg received the endorsement over state Sen. Gretchen Hoffman, who had said she’d campaign on shrinking the federal government and repealing President Obama’s health care law.Byberg ran against Peterson and lost in 2010.
