Smith Comes Out On Top In Leaders Debate
"Wildrose comes out on top after Alberta leader’s debate." - Globe and Mail, April 13, 2012 April 13, 2012 (Edmonton, AB): Last night, Wildrose Leader Danielle Smith went head-to-head with other party leaders. She outshone them all not only with her capability and preparedness to be Premier, but with the sound policies that Wildrose has presented Albertans. Here is a sampling of the feedback: "Smith's manner was poised and confident.
She was quick to jump into the fray, but never looked frazzled. Smith hit plenty of home runs." - David Staples, Edmonton Journal, April 13, 2012 "Smith: smart, likable, relaxed, charming." - David Staples, Edmonton Journal, April 13, 2012 "Smith remained relentlessly on message, pummelling Redford time and again with questions about politicians' pay, the Achilles heel of the Tory campaign." - Edmonton Journal, April 13, 2012 "Analysts say Smith shines as Redford holds her own against onslaught." - Edmonton Journal, April 13, 2012 "[Smith] looked calm, cool, collected, composed. Redford didn't." - Duane Bratt, Edmonton Journal, April 13, 2012 "But if Smith really is leading in this race, she probably won by holding her own with a cool, competent performance." - Don Braid, Calgary Herald, April 13, 2012 "The devastating blow: That goes to Ms. Smith, who appeared poised throughout much of the debate but hit her stride towards the end." - Globe and Mail, April 13, 2012 "Wildrose Leader Danielle Smith won Thursday's debate and Progressive Conservative Leader Alison Redford lost it, an Ipsos Reid/Global TV/CORUS online survey indicates." - Global Edmonton, April 13, 2012 Wildrose stands for free enterprise, less government, increased personal freedom, and democracy. - 30-
