WILLMAR -- U.S. Rep. Collin Peterson said Wednesday that he thinks the new Seventh District is just fine.

The new district was revealed Tuesday afternoon when a state redistricting panel released the new maps for congressional and legislative districts.


The new boundaries will be used in the 2012 elections.

The new district ad-ded a few counties, but still covers most of the western third of Minnesota.
