Sur­geon Chris Peters (R) is “strongly con­sid­er­ing run­ning again” an­oth­er chal­lenge to Rep. Dave Loeb­sack (D) after los­ing by 8 points last year in a dis­trict that backed Trump by 4 points.

“So at this stage of the game, we are put­ting to­geth­er a cam­paign plan, ex­plor­at­ory com­mit­tee, all that type of stuff that goes in­to it,” he said. “Last cycle we star­ted sev­en months and a week be­fore elec­tion day which really isn’t enough time to gen­er­ate a really ef­fect­ive cam­paign.” (KNIA/KRLS)
