Fletcher to Possibly Have Election Challenger

By Sarah Goebel | 

Governor Ernie Fletcher may have a challenger in the primary election - Billy Harper.

Harper who served as the governor's statewide finance chairman in the 2003 Guber-Natorial campaign said he'll challenge Fletcher in the 2007 Republican Primary Election.

Harper said he initially planned to back Fletcher's re-election next year, but since then he has distanced himself from the first-term republican governor.

Recently a grand jury indicted handed up nearly 30 indictments against Fletcher and members of his administration.
