Rep. Collin Peterson was re-elected to a ninth term in Minnesota’s 7th Congressional District Tuesday, which covers almost the entire western third of Minnesota, from the Canadian border to a few counties north of Iowa.
Peterson defeated Republican challenger Dave Hughes, an Air Force veteran, with 53 percent of the vote.
The 7th District has shifted between Republicans and Democrats over the years, but incumbents have generally enjoyed long terms in office.
