Another Conservative MP has entered the race to replace Stephen Harper as party leader.
Erin O’Toole announced his bid Friday morning in his hometown of Bowmanvill, ON.
The lawyer and former member of the Royal Canadian Air Force says the Tories need an experienced leader with “fresh ideas” who can build on past successes.
Earlier today Conservative MP Lisa Raitt announced on Twitter she is stepping down from her role as finance critic, suggesting she is getting close to declaring her intention to run.
Other declared candidates include MPs Maxime Bernier, Andrew Scheer, Kellie Leitch, Michael Chong, Deepak Obhrai and Brad Trost.
Conservatives will elect their new leader next May 27.
