Dr. Noel Collis

Dist. 7 Republican Congressional candidate Dr. Noel Collis.

(Alexandria, MN) Dr. Noel Collis made a stop in Alexandria to make it official.  He is running for the District 7 congressional seat currently held by longtime Democratic congressman Collin Peterson.  The announcement is one week following the announcement of former Lt. Governor Michelle Fischbach, and a month after the man who has come close to 5% within unseating Peterson in the last two elections, Dave Hughes, announced he was running.  Collis is a lifelong Minnesota resident and doctor.  He is a graduate of St. Olaf and the U of M Medical School.  He ran for the District 7 position once before; back in 1992.  Collin Peterson has been representing the district since 1990.  Collis calls Peterson a career politician and contends he is not a politician or a lawyer.  You can hear a conversation with Dr. Collis by clicking on the audio link (BELOW).

Collis joins two-time Dist. 7 Republican candidate Dave Hughes, former Lt. Governor Michelle Fischbach, and Alexandrian Joel Novak as candidates for the 7th Congressional District.
