UPDATE - Frary has withdrawn from the primary - see below http://www.asmainegoes.com/comment/698394#comment-698394
from over the AMG transom -
Professor John Frary, conservative columnist and 2008 second district Republican congressional candidate, will challenge fellow republican Senator Tom Saviello this spring in a primary for Maine Senate District 18. Word on the street is that Frary is supported in this effort by conservative activist Mary Adams, a close ally of Governor LePage.
Saviello is a former Democrat who switched parties to join the GOP. Speculation of another potential party shift has already begun.
