Travis Toews to run upcoming UCP leadership race_CP
Alberta Finance Minister Travis Toews has officially entered the leadership contest to replace Jason Kenney as United Conservative Party leader and premier.
Toews has not made a formal announcement, but has registered his candidacy on the Elections Alberta website.
He could not be immediately reached for comment, but said last week he was considering a run.
Toews is a first-term legislature member from the constituency of Grande Prairie-Wapiti and has been finance minister since the start of Kenney's government in April 2019.
UCP backbencher Brian Jean and Danielle Smith _ both former Wildrose Party leaders _ have said they will run for Kenney's job, but have not yet moved to make it official.
The party is working out the logistics of a vote and has not announce a date or any other details.
