Kelvin Goertzen

Steinbach MLA Kelvin Goertzen is non committal about whether he will run for the leadership of the Manitoba Progressive Conservatives.

When asked if he's giving any thought to the idea, Goertzen replied, "The only thought right now that I've been giving is to get a little time away with my family. You know, the pre-election time that we had, then going into the election and then coming back into the Legislature quickly, I just haven't had a chance even to spend much time with my wife or my son and that's top priority right now, to want to get away for a couple of days with them."

Goertzen says there are a number of potential candidates waiting in the wings until the party makes an announcement in late November about the date of the leadership convention.

Hugh McFadyen announced after the election that he would be stepping down once a new leader is chosen.
