Republican Tyler Kistner and DFL Rep. Angie Craig discussed agriculture at the Farmfest congressional candidate forum Tuesday.

DFL U.S. Rep. Angie Craig and Republican challenger Tyler Kistner sat at the center of a long table of congressional candidates at Farmfest on Tuesday - and the prominent staging didn't disappoint.

Even if they avoided saying each other's name.

The two-term Second District congresswoman and the former Marine pushed their competing agricultural priorities during a roughly hourlong panel at the annual industry gathering in southwestern Minnesota's Redwood County. Craig highlighted her bill to enact year-round E15 ethanol blend at gas pumps nationwide, while Kistner vowed to refocus the upcoming farm bill on "production agriculture."
