Stephen Khan has officially pulled out of the PC Party Leadership race. Khan says he will remain a volunteer for the party and is asking his supporters to stand behind Richard Starke as he will be doing. This comes as Starke unveiled his plan to defeat the NDP in the next election by having both the tories and the Wildrose work together but remain separate.
Meanwhile, Wildrose Leader Brian Jean has announced he would be willing to step down and run for a consolidated party and leadership candidate Jason Kenney is standing on the Unite the Right Platform.
Remaining candidates Kenney, Starke and Byron Nelson will be in Grande Prairie for a PC Leadership Town Hall tonight. It will be held at the Pomeroy Hotel from 7:00 pm to 9:00pm. Attendance costs $15 as a fundraiser for the local and provincial PC associations.
