Students of Benson Public Schools will be returning to their classrooms for in-person instruction if the number of COVID-19 cases within the 14-day period prior to the Sept. 8 start date stays below 10.

Before Republicans can take on Peterson once again, they need to settle a primary contest. Former State Sen. and Lt. Gov. Michelle Fischbach won the Republican endorsement.

But retired Air Force Maj. Dave Hughes says he’s “better for the people in western Minnesota in every conceivable way.” Hughes, who twice lost to Peterson, wants Republican primary voters to back him for another rematch.
