The NDP's Andrea Horwath says she wants to make it clear she's running to be Ontario's next premier.

The leader of the third party says New Democrats are a realistic alternative to what she calls the "corrupt" Liberals.

The Progressive Conservatives, she says, would set Ontario back with deep public-sector cuts.

Both Premier Kathleen Wynne and Tory leader Tim Hudak have tried to frame the election as a two way race, while largely dismissing the NDP.

But Horwath is shrugging off suggestions that Ontarians might choose to ignore the New Democrats to try to stop the Liberals or PCs from winning office.

Instead, she says New Democrats would not waste taxpayer dollars as the Liberals have done with decisions like cancelling two gas plants at a cost of up to $1.1 billion.

    Hudak's debate strategy:

    1. Attack Wynne and ignore Horwath for the most part.
    2. Don't forget the gas plants.
    3. I will create a "gazillion" jobs.
    4. I will cut 100,000 jobs in the public sector.

    Horwath's debate strategy:

    1. Attack Wynne
    2. Don't forget the gas plants.
    3. I can be trusted but Hudak can't.

    Wynne's strategy:

    1. Remind you to be afraid of Tea Party Tim (multiple times)
    2. Ignore Horwath for the most part.
    3. Act like a premier rather than a "wannabe premier" like the other two.

    Best guess as to outcome of debate;

    1. Hudak will come off as stilted, weak, shallow and strident and somewhat "lost".
    2. Horwath will be an effective debater but from a Party that has no set direction..
    3. Wynne will be on the defence but will get in some well place "jabs" at the other 2.
