Tory insiders said officials close to Mr. Van Loan have been contacting party members, trying to determine how much support there would be for him.

"His people are making calls," a source said. "No one would do that unless he gave them the signal."

Looks like its going to be quite the party,
Although personally I am still behind Tim Hudak if he opts to run.

i saw the article as well but still be surprised if he actually did decide to run for this , my guess is some are at the early stage of testing the waters and not that serious yet .
when the race gets going more than likely only be 2 or 3 serious runs for the leadership .

I'm going to war against him, if he does. 1) Because I have ZERO respect for the man, as a person and 2) because we cant afford to lose anyone on the federal side

York-Simcoe is one of the safest Conservative seats.

There`s gonna be some resistance to another leader who doesn`t have a seat in the legislature.

Stephen has some interesting posts up on the state of the race. It looks like Hudak has recieved the endorsement of Rob Nicholson, and may be recieving an endorsement from Baird as well.

I hope Tim runs!

Peter should stay at the federal level.
