|Dalton for leader of LPC?|
Kinsella is a big fan of Dalton, and is well-connected.
The deadline for candidates to sign a nomination form to run as leader is January 14, 2013, with the election taking place via our brand new primary mechanism (set out in Article 56 of our party Constitution) on April 14, 2013.
So there is plenty of time for Dalton to tidy up the few things that need tidying up in Ontario and then run.
Imagine the boost to membership and supporters if we have Dalton also traipsing around all 308 ridings to sign up supporters – something every serious candidate for leadership will need to do, given that each and every riding has 100 voting points at the primary, all allocated amongst the candidates based on the preferential votes of those in the riding who cast votes for the leader.
I would expect Dalton to bring in between 200,000 and 300,000 new Supporters fairly easily, which would be a major boost for the party going forward.
How about it, Warren?
