With just over a week to go, the candidates in the Ontario Liberal leadership race are scrambling to line up endorsements from MPs and other notables within the party. Today, Sandra Pupatello — who emerged as the front-runner after last-weekend’s delegate selection process — announced that 25 presidents of Ontario Liberal riding associations — from Thunder Bay-Atitokan on Ontario’s border with Manitoba to Ottawa-Orleans on its border with Quebec — have endorsed Pupatello. There are a total of 107 ridings in the province. This comes on top of what the Pupatello campaign claims is 83 ex-officio delegates. (There are only 419 ex-officio delegates).
