(ABC 6 News) -- Another challenger has thrown her hat in the ring for Minnesota House District 27A.

Longtime school teacher Peggy Bennett announced Monday evening that she will seek the Albert lea area seat.  A republican, Bennett said she wants to put the focus back on the people in hopes of ending party politics.

"I believe that people need to come before politics. people are the foundation of this nation and the foundation of this state and we need to listen to the people," Bennett said.

Bennett also said she would work to lower taxes in hopes of attracting new businesses to Southern Minnesota.
