The Conservative Party of Canada is in good hands, according to a local politician.
Former Prince Edward Hastings Conservative MP Daryl Kramp says he is content with the result of an election vote that saw Saskatchewan MP Andrew Scheer win in nail-biting, come-from-behind fashion over Quebec’s Maxime Bernier. Scheer won with almost 51% of the vote on the 13th ballot, despite the fact that Bernier led through the 12 previous rounds of the election.
Kramp looks forward to the future with Scheer at the helm.
Kramp says he wasn’t surprised to see the vote as close as it was, with a third candidate challenging the top two.
Kramp added that he felt Scheer’s great “ground game” ultimately was the deciding factor in his victory.
Kramp himself will be running for a seat at Queen’s Park in next year’s provincial election.
