Rep. Michelle Fischbach announces she will run for reelection
The first-term congresswoman represents Minnesota's Seventh District, covering much of western Minnesota.
MOORHEAD — U.S. Rep. Michelle Fischbach announced on Tuesday, Feb. 15, she will run for reelection in 2022.
Fischbach, a former lieutenant governor and state senator, defeated longtime Democratic incumbent Collin Peterson in the 2020 election to become the representative of Minnesota's Seventh Congressional District, which covers a large part of western Minnesota, from the Canadian border to the southern part of the state. The district includes the cities of Fergus Falls, Moorhead and Willmar.
Fischbach is serving her first term in the U.S. House of Representatives.
No other candidate is seeking the Republican nomination for November's general ballot. Three candidates are vying for Democratic-Farmer-Laborer endorsement: Mark Lindquist, Reed Olson and Ernest Oppegaard-Peltier. Travis Johnson is the sole candidate who has declared for the Libertarian primary.
