Omaha, NE (AP) - Lee Terry is again facing a Republican challenger in Tuesday's partisan primary election, this time from a former supporter who argues he has stronger conservative credentials than the incumbent.
Omaha businessman Dan Frei is seeking to derail Terry's run for a ninth term.
As the lone challenger, Frei faces no danger of splitting anti-incumbent votes. In the last three election cycles, Terry has faced at least one anti-establishment opponent in the primary, with those challengers consistently drawing about 40 percent of the vote.
But Frei has raised little money for the race and has had no television ads to increase his name recognition, raising doubt among some political experts that he can pull more than half of voters he needs to advance to the general election.
