Gretchen Hoffman was elected to the Minnesota State Senate in 2010, defeating Democrat incumbent Dan Skogen to represent Otter Tail and parts of Becker and Wadena Counties.
As the former owner of a small business, Gretchen has a keen understanding of the challenges facing our economy and the onerous burden that government places on employers. In the 2011 session, the Minnesota Chamber of Commerce gave her a “100% score” reflecting her support of Minnesota’s employers.
Gretchen Hoffman Announces Run for Congress
Republican Will Challenge Longtime Washington Politician Collin Peterson
Vergas, Minn. – Vergas Republican Gretchen Hoffman today entered the race for Minnesota’s Seventh Congressional District, challenging 11-term Democrat Collin Peterson. Hoffman is a former nurse and small business owner and is currently serving her first term in the Minnesota Senate. In her announcement, Hoffman vowed to give Congressman Collin Peterson his toughest challenge to date.
“Like many of my neighbors, I’ve grown increasingly frustrated with Washington politicians who continually fail to clean up the mess they’ve created with their mountains of wasteful spending,” said Hoffman. “Collin Peterson has simply been in Washington too long and has lost touch with his Minnesota values. I look forward to the coming campaign and building a winning coalition of Minnesotans who want to see fiscal responsibility return to our nation’s capitol.”
