According to my source, 41 per cent of the Burlington Ontario PC Riding Association’s members voted for MP Tim Hudak as their first choice. Christine Elliott came second with 34 per cent of the first choice votes followed by Frank Klees and Randy Hillier with 20 per cent and 4 per cent respectively.
It’s interesting that this is just about the breakdown I had predicted in discussions with my wife, and is about what I had expected to see on the first round for Ontario overall. Frank Klees, however, surprised many with his strong second place finish.
Hillier’s four per cent won’t be of much help to Elliott or to Klees so Hudak will go into the third round with a strong lead. And he’ll need it for, in Burlington, it’ll be a toss-up for the final round.
