MINNESOTA’S 7TH CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT

November 3, 2018 by TWN Staff

Incumbent: Collin Peterson (D)

Challenger: Dave Hughes (R)

Current Polling: No recent polling data available

Why this race matters: This Republican-leaning district is decidedly pro-Trump, but Collin Peterson has effectively represented his constituents’ interests since 1991. Agriculture is the top issue with voters and as the Ranking member for the House Agriculture Committee, Peterson knows the issues and what his folks care about. Peterson won by only 5% in 2016, so this seat a must-win for Democrats.
