Collin Peterson heads to Copenhagen; GOP floats rumor he may retire
BEMIDJI -- U.S. Rep. Collin Peterson of Minnesota's 7th Congressional District, who took a lot of heat during a Bemidji town hall hearing in August on his vote for the House climate change bill, is apparently headed to Copenhagen, the site of a world global climate summit.
The National Republican Congressional Caucus is also putting out rumors that Peterson, elected in 1990, might not seek re-election in 2010. But the probable response is: "Don't they wish."
