WASHINGTON — House Agriculture Committee Chairman Collin Peterson was defeated in the race for Minnesota’s 7th District. The following statement may be attributed to American Farm Bureau Federation President Zippy Duvall:
“We at the American Farm Bureau Federation would like to express our thanks to Rep. Peterson for his decades of service in the House of Representatives. Throughout his years on the House Agriculture Committee, especially his years as the committee’s chairman, Congressman Peterson has been a leader for rural America on such important issues as the farm bill, regulatory reform and new trade deals. He made it clear through his work that his politics are grounded in farmers, livestock producers and rural America. That will be his legacy.”
