Senators Doyle and Patterson endorse Andrew Scheer for Conservative Leader
Today, Senator Norman Doyle and Senator Dennis Patterson announced their support for Andrew Scheer’s candidacy for the leadership of the Conservative Party of Canada. Patterson represents Nunavut in the Senate and is a former premier of the Northwest Territories, while Doyle represents Newfoundland and Labrador.
“I am honoured by the support from these hardworking senators. As indicated by these announcements my campaign is building a broad coalition that will unite Conservatives from coast to coast in order to defeat Trudeau in 2019,” said Scheer. “I am proud of the diverse support I am receiving across the country.”
“I am supporting Andrew because I believe he is the candidate who can keep Conservatives united in the lead up to 2019. He’s a real leader who understands what it takes to defeat the Liberals next election,” said Senator Patterson.
“Andrew’s leadership gives everyone a voice and focuses on bringing Conservatives together as we move forward,” said Senator Doyle.
Doyle and Patterson join Denise Batters, David Wells and David Tkachuk as Conservative Senators who are supporting Andrew Scheer for Leader of the Conservative Party of Canada.
