    about running for another term. But here's hoping he stays on for another cycle.

    •  But that article was back in May (0+ / 0-)

      didn't he say more recently that he's leaning towards running again?

      •  trying to find the article on RRH (0+ / 0-)

        But there was recent article that basically said that Peterson was pissed of with the farm bill fiasco and it made it look like he was rethinking about running for another term.

        •  Didn't he have the same reaction last time around (0+ / 0-)

          and it's hardly proactive to retire and put his district at risk of takeover by yet another obstacle to a Farm Bill.

          No word on what he feels about running again.  But, as I said, retiring would only be counter-productive to his efforts on the Farm Bill since he would be replaced either with a Republican blocker or a Democrat with no seniority.
