Peterson, one of the few remaining Blue Dogs in the House was endorsed by much of the business community, including BIPAC and NFIB, along with the AFL-CIO, American Federation of Teachers and the Minnesota Farmers Union.
The congressman was first elected in 1990 and is currently the top Democrat on the House Agriculture Committee. Peterson scored 86% on BIPAC's 112th Congress voting record.
