Candidates Decided

WINNIPEG - Tuxedo MLA Heather Stefanson and former MP Shelly Glover will be the only official candidates to run for the Manitoba PC leadership.

MLA Shannon Martin and former Conservative CFO Ken Lee are out. Martin withdrew from the race, while Lee didn't qualify, according to the Tory leadership committee.

The deadline for those wanting to enter the race was 5 p.m. yesterday. Candidates needed to have been endorsed by at least 50 party members by that time.

Manitoba’s Premier will be replaced when a new party leader is selected on October 30.
