OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — A conservative Republican businessman plans to challenge U.S. Representative Lee Terry, so the eight-term Congressman could face challengers in both the GOP primary and general election if he advances.

The Omaha World-Herald reports 50-year-old Dan Frei plans to challenge Terry because he believes he could be a better leader.

Frei says he's a constitutional conservative who admires Iowa Republican Steve King.

Already Democratic Omaha City Councilman Pete Festersen said he would run against Terry in Nebraska's 2nd District.

Former State Senator Chip Maxwell of Omaha is also considering a run.
