Christine Elliott to announce leadership bid

The deputy PC leader will be first to launch bid to replace Hudak

She'll be the first to throw her name into the ring.

Newstalk 1010 has learned that Deputy Progressive Conservative leader Christine Elliott will be announcing a leadership bid Wednesday morning at an event planned around the corner from the legislature.

It has been long-rumoured that Elliott was eyeing the Tory leadership.

Sources confirm the Whitby-Oshawa MPP has been quietly preparing her quest for the party's top job. She has already enlisted a volunteer media liaison.

This would be Elliott's second attempt at leadership. The first was in 2009, as she hoped to replace John Tory. She placed third behind Hudak and former MPP Frank Klees.

    I agree with John, all the best Christine, so happy you're going to run. Peter's comments are very stupid, by the way.
