But Hudak inherits a challenge in uniting the Conservatives.
Klees, 58, a social conservative who was backed by a coalition of evangelical Christians, anti-abortion activists and new Canadians, wasted no time in laying claim to a major role in the future direction of the PC party.
"I am not supposed to speak very long but I will, because I can," he said in a surprisingly impolitic concession speech.
"I don't think the new leader of our party would cut me off. I think he might need me along the way," the Newmarket-Aurora MPP said.
The fact that the Toronto Star is going so hard to the hoop to try and make this Harris/Hudak connection thrills me.
The Liberals want us to try and out center them, and now that we even going to attempt it anymore they have to beat on their record and on their platform.
As I said at start of the campaign,
If the Star goes at our leader hard.

The only thing good to read in the Toronto Star is Chantel Hebert's usually insightful, balanced and informative column on the federal politics situation in Quebec. But at least I only need to link through the "Columnists" Tab on BT to read that, and not purchase the paper.
