Former conservative member of parliament Rex Barnes announced today that he will be challenging Conservative incumbent Ray Hunter for the nomination in Grand falls-Windsor-Green Bay South.
Hunter will apparently seek the nomination again; at the very least Hunter doesn’t look like he’s ready to pack it in.
- Hunter’s never been tight with anyone in the Tory caucus. Danny used to keep him by the door and that was not to guard it.
- Barnes evidently has a good idea Ray is vulnerable and that his candidacy will garner some favour from the party backroom.
- Don’t be surprised if Ray crosses the floor or that the backroom persuades him to retire.
- Don’t be surprised if there are more challenges to incumbents or floor-crossing.
