In a video announcing his bid, Peters said that he is “built for this job.”
Peters has been considering the idea of running for the seat since early this fall when he held a listening tour of the district.
In 2016 Peters ran in the Republican primary against the party endorsed candidate state Sen. John Rafferty.
In October former Columbia County Republican Party Chair Bill Toth sent a letter to Republican party members in the 11th district attacking Peters for endorsing Democratic Attorney General candidate Josh Shapiro in the race.
