Chisholm out!

Robert Chisholm's statement can be found here.

I don't think this comes as a shock to anyone. As the only unilingual candidate for leader of a party who MPs are primarily from Quebec, Chisholm never really stood a chance at victory. But I will say this. He certainly gave himself a greater profile. Should the NDP win the 2015 election he has become a lock for cabinet. I'm thinking Labour, Intergovernmental Affairs, and/or ACOA.

So that's one down. Seven more to go. If I worked in the Liberal or Conservative war rooms I would currently be preparing the team to face off against Peggy Nash right about now.

And if I were Romeo Saganash I would be preparing my concession speech right about now.
