Two more candidates have launched campaigns to lead the Alberta Progressive Conservatives.
Both Richard Starke, a current MLA, and Donna Kennedy-Glans, a former one, say their goal is to rebuild the party, not merge it with the Wildrose.
Starke says the way forward is to fix the PC party.
“They are two different parties, they are two different cultures, which is important. And quite frankly, a pursuit of a merger with the Wildrose is putting power ahead of principle.”
Kennedy-Glans says her supporters are telling her that uniting the right is not the way to go.
“We’ve learned, I think there is humility. I see it in people’s eyes, I see it in their commitment to rebuild, and people want a party that actually represents the values of most Albertans.”
There are now four candidates in the running including former Tory MP Jason Kenney, and Calgary Lawyer Byron Nelson.
Nelson is also not in favour of a merger, but Kenney wants to dissolve the PC party and merge with the Wildrose into a new entity.
