Peterson has conservative ideas

To the editor:

Reasons why conservative-voting people can trust Congressman Collin Peterson, D-Minn., for another two years:

In March, 2010 — Collin was the only Minnesota Democrat to vote “nay” on the Affordable Care Act, a.k.a. “Obama Care.” True, we need care legislation, but must be done correctly.

In February, 2019 — Collin was one of only two Democrats to vote “nay” on major “gun control” legislation. Peterson stands by the second amendment.

In the 2010’s, Collin was one of only three “pro-life” Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives.

In 2019, on the impeachment issue of President Donald J. Trump, Peterson had a “quartet” of “nay” votes: Impeachment Inquiry, the two Articles of Impeachment, and sending the Impeachment Articles over to the U.S. Senate.

On the issue of the city of Washington, DC becoming a state, Collin was the only Democrat to vote “nay.”

For many years, Collin Peterson has been either chairman or the ranking Democrat on the House of Agriculture Committee. Our district 7 of Minnesota as the highest number of farms and farmers among all 435 Congressional districts nationwide. The district is tailor-made for Peterson; thus Collin has much “push and pull” for his rural constituency.

Collin’s ears have been open wide for his constituents. His opinions and voting records show it.

In closing, as a “pro-Amtrak” Republican, I endorse the re-election of Collin Peterson, D-Minn., on Tuesday, Nov. 3. Collin favors the preservation, improvement, expansion of Amtrak railroad passenger service. Amtrak is vital in connecting big city, America to small town, America.
