The United Conservative Party leadership race is down to three candidates. Jeff Callaway has dropped out, endorsing Jason Kenney at an event in Red Deer Wednesday morning.
“Jason talks about listening to the grassroots members and it is because of his leadership we have a United Conservative Party today,” the former Wildrose Party president said in a statement. “This is about bringing conservatives together and ensuring a strong, unified party.”
Callaway’s departure leaves Kenney, former Wildrose leader Brian Jean and Calgary lawyer Doug Schweitzer in the running to lead the new party. Members will vote between October 26th and 28th.
