Wynne makes her case to voters: ‘I can do better’
Trailing her main rivals for the premier’s chair by a double-digit margin in the polls, the struggling Liberal leader is using a new ad to try and mount a comeback bid in the last 14 days of the campaign.
A new ad released Wednesday with an appeal for donations pictures her with friendly crowds, often at party events, and jogging.
“How can I make life better for you? That’s what I think about when I get up to run at 5 in the morning,” Wynne intones. “That work never stops. Better never stops. Neither will I.”
Liberal campaign director David Herle said the ad comes as Doug Ford’s Conservative campaign is “drifting down” to its base level of support and anti-Ford voters pick a lane. He claims the NDP has “failed to close the deal” over Horwath’s $1.4 billion platform accounting error, plan to close the Pickering nuclear plant and refusal to use back-to-work legisation to end long strikes.
“This is the moment to make our case — unabashedly and unapologetically,” Herle wrote in a note to supporters. (Source: Toronto Star)
