Rep. Jim Abeler to challenge McFadden – and the status quo – in U.S. Senate primary. Just days after an emotionally-charged Minnesota GOP Convention, the 16-year MN House veteran and US Senate candidate Jim Abeler announced today that he will in fact mount a challenge to businessman Mike McFadden in a primary election – in spite of the fact that McFadden received the party endorsement.
