Pierre Poilievre Leaves Door Open To CPC Leadership Run

“It’s too early to say what’s going to happen” says Poilievre.

Conservative finance critic Pierre Poilievre is leaving the door open to a possible run for CPC leader.

Following a press conference on the Liberals fiscal update, Poilievre had this to say when asked if he had categorically ruled out running:

“It’s too early to say what’s going to happen. There will be lots of people who will put their names forward. What I do know is that we need someone who will stand up, fight back, and win.”

Poilievre did note that he does not currently have “any campaign organization”.

Poilievre certainly has support among some of the Conservative base, and his clips slamming the Liberals are wildly successful on social media.

And, as you can see in the Twitter poll conducted among the over 30,000 people who follow me on Twitter shoes nearly two-thirds wanting Poilievre to enter the race:


Poilievre likely doesn’t have the kind of establishment backing enjoyed by people like Peter MacKay, but Poilievre’s strong communication skills and ability to motivate core Conservative voters could make him a strong candidate.
