BREAKING NEWS: Sources Say Doug Ford Has Won the Ontario Conservative Leadership Race
In a stunning turn of events, sources say Doug Ford has won the Ontario Conservative leadership race.
The news is leaking out from senior campaign officials, says CBC:
Doug Ford is the new leader of Ontario’s Progressive Conservatives, according to senior campaign sources who spoke to CBC’s Mike Crawley, bringing to a close a turbulent six-week race just three months out from a provincial election.
While we cannot confirm if he has won, reporters from mainstream media outlets from the Toronto Star and CBC are confirming Ford has won:
