Posted February 11, 2011 at 1:40pm

Andrew Ian Dodge on Friday at the Conservative Political Action Conference officially announced his candidacy in the Republican primary against Sen. Olympia Snowe (Maine).

Roll Call has reported that Dodge, who believes Snowe is too liberal for the party, was planning a bid. As Roll Call has reported, Dodge initially wouldn’t say if he was the mystery tea party candidate aiming to unseat Snowe.

The Tea Party Express announced Thursday it will target Snowe with its national fundraising base.
