Morning nomination news

2008 Liberal candidate in Louis-Hébert, Jean Beaupré says they will give it another shot. The riding was the only Tory incumbant loss last election, with Luc Harvey falling narrowly to Pascale-Pierre Paille of the BQ, with Beaupré improving on the Liberal performance enough to make it a three-way fight. The Liberals last won the riding in 2000, and it probably represents the best chance for a Liberal gain in the Quebec City area.

Jean Leclerc in Quebec with Martin Cauchon back to Outremont?

Both are possible. Leclerc is apparently mulling it over while Cauchon is one of 3 candidates to have expressed interest in Outremont.
