DETROIT LAKES, Minn. - "Citizen Peterson" is ready to put some of his things in the Becker County Museum, but isn't ready to relegate himself to history, yet.

Former U.S. House Agriculture Chairman Collin Peterson, D-Minn., lost his district 53.4% to 39.9% to his challenger, Rep. Michelle Fischbach, R-Minn., and left office in January.

He admits the change feels strange.
