Peters Running for Congress
An Army veteran, and surgeon, from Coralville is running for Congress. Friday and Saturday , Christopher Peters will announce his candidacy at several stops in Iowa's 2nd District.
He's running as a republican against incumbent democrat Dave Loebsack.
One of Peters' goals, if elected, is to reduce the federal debt.
Peters would also like to do something about the growing income in-equality in this country.
He ran un-successfully for the Iowa Senate in 2010 from the Libertarian Party, and says he's now running for Congress because the problems he's most interested in, and concerned about, are at the "federal level."
Friday night Doctor Peters will make his first official announcement in Sigourney, with stops Saturday in Knoxville, Fairfield, Walcott, and Iowa City.
