Senator Carolyn Stewart Olsen endorses Andrew Scheer for Conservative Leader

Andrew Scheer, candidate for leader of the Conservative Party of Canada, today welcomed the endorsement of Senator Carolyn Stewart Olsen.

"I have known Andrew since he was an intern here on Parliament Hill many years ago," said Stewart Olsen. "In that time I have been impressed by his character, his talent and his leadership ability."

"Andrew is a real Conservative who has the ability to bring all of us together in presenting a positive vision for Canada. I am proud to support him."

Prior to being appointed to the Senate in 2009, Senator Stewart Olsen served in the office of the Rt. Hon. Stephen Harper, as Press Secretary and later, Director of Strategic Communications.

Said Scheer "Senator Stewart Olsen has been a wise and loyal advisor throughout her public service career both in Opposition, in the government and now in the Senate. I am grateful for her support and confidence."

With her endorsement, Senator Stewart Olsen joins 23 Members of Parliament, seven Senators, eight former MPs and 23 MLAs in their support of Andrew Scheer for Conservative Leader.
