WASHINGTON -- Democratic Rep. Collin Peterson is the best marksman in the U.S. Congress.
Peterson, a Democrat from the 7th Congressional District, took first place at the annual Congressional Shoot-Out at a gun club in Maryland Tuesday. Technically, he's the "Top Gun Member of Congress," according to the Congressional Sportsmen's Foundation, which hosts the annual bipartisan event for members of the Congressional Sportsmen's Caucus.
Former vice presidential candidate and GOP Rep. Paul Ryan was the top skeet shooter, but Peterson was best across all three categories of skeet, trap and sporting clays, according to the Sportsmen's Foundation.
Gov. Mark Dayton, speaking to a mostly Republican audience at the annual Minnesota Business Partnership dinner, repeated his familiar attack on the House GOP, blaming them for a legislative impasse on transportation.
