WASHINGTON — As the House of Representatives gets ready to vote on a huge trade package Friday, the Washington Post released a handy list of which representatives most frequently vote against their own parties.
The Democrat who most often votes to buck the party is — big surprise — 7th District Rep. Collin Peterson.
According to data compiled by the Post, Peterson voted against his party 30 percent of the time. The 24-year congressman is one of the last Democrats left on the fence regarding the trade package. Most of the caucus is deeply opposed, and Peterson has become a sought-after yes vote.
