"Welcome to Districts 7 and 8 The southern one-third of Hubbard County is now part of Congressional District 7, while the upper two-thirds is in Congressional District 8.

Before Feb. 15, Ernest Joseph Oppegaard-Peltier III, 33, of Bemidji, had been a candidate for northwestern Minnesota’s 7th Congressional District.
