Reaction to Jason Kenney’s resignation made its way to Lethbridge as well. Local politicians commented on the decision Thursday. As Micah Quinn explains, there are some who have already put their names forward vying to become the new leader of the UCP including Danielle Smith and Brian Jean.
UPDATE: UCP caucus chair Nathan Neudorf released a statement in the evening on May 19 that said Jason Kenney will remain as Premier until a new interim leader is chosen by the party. No date has been set as to when the new interim leader will be chosen.
