Stephen Harper says Pierre Poilievre has the best chance to win the next federal election
Former prime minister Stephen Harper says Pierre Poilievre is the Conservative leadership candidate with the best shot at leading the party to victory in the next federal election.
Harper’s declaration came in a Monday evening video posted to Facebook and Twitter, in which he described Poilievre’s ability to galvanize support from new members as a critical ingredient for success.
“That’s how we win the next federal election, and in my opinion, Pierre has made by far the strongest case,” Harper said.
Poilievre’s campaign claims to have signed up more than 300,000 members to vote in the leadership race.
