Manitoba NDP claims Shelly Glover campaign reached out to try and ‘takedown’ PC leadership race rival

WINNIPEG –

Manitoba NDP leader Wab Kinew claims the campaign for Shelly Glover reached out to his party to try to “takedown” Heather Stefanson in the Progressive Conservative Party‚Äôs leadership race.

“The Glover campaign reached out to the NDP a week ago to try and use us for a takedown of the campaign being run by the member for Tuxedo,” Kinew said during Question Period on Thursday.

Glover and Stefanson are currently running to become the new leader of the Progressive Conservative Party in Manitoba and the next premier of the province.

Kinew added the Glover campaign gave the NDP “compromising” information against Stefanson’s campaign and they have the evidence to prove it.

“We call on the Glover campaign to explain to PC party members why they are trying to use the NDP to win that leadership race. We call on the campaign being run by the member for Tuxedo to respond to the allegations of irregular memberships,” Kinew said.

This is a developing story. More details will be provided when they become available.
