Wildrose nominates full candidate slate to take PCs head on

EDMONTON, AB (March 19, 2012): Wildrose has completed its grassroots candidate nomination process and will head into the provincial election with a full slate of 87 MLA candidates and three Senate candidates ready to challenge the incumbent Progressive Conservatives in every constituency in the province. Wildrose Leader Danielle Smith announced the full slate in Edmonton with an election call potentially days away. 

Wildrose also unveiled its campaign bus for the first time. “We have 87 candidates and 87 campaign teams ready for this election, and I think we can win,” Smith said. “For the first time in 40 years, Albertans will have a real, viable and conservative alternative to four more years of the PCs.” Wildrose held open, grassroots nominations in all 87 constituencies in Alberta. The nomination process began in September of 2010 and formally wrapped up late last week with the nomination of Adam Corsault in Edmonton-Mill Creek.
