Long Weekend Notes
1. The Tories will only let candidates who have lost in the past two elections run for them if they defend themselves to the party. It's a good thing they didn't have this rule back when John Diefenbaker was getting started.
2. The Liberals are within one point of the Tories! Err...within twelve points of the Tories!
3. Riley Hennessey has a good post up about the prospect of a fall election in New Brunswick. I haven't heard much out of New Brunswick lately but I take this to mean that Lord's popularity has been resurrected in recent months.
4. Voting in the first round closes tomorrow at noon in the Greatest PM...We Never Had contest.
