Post Summer Fling nomination news

Many candidates are eyeing a run for the Liberals in Egmont, the only PEI seat not held by the Grits in the province. Former Premier and 2008 candidate Keith Milligan is still deciding if he will run, with Matt McGuire, son of former MP Joe McGuire, previous nomination candidate Angie Cormier, former PEI Liberal President Brenda Hackett, and Liberal MLA's Janice Sherry and Rob Henderson as potential candidates.

Daniel Veniez, a self described former Tory "bag carrier" and previously the chair of the Prince Rupert bulk commodity terminal until he was fired by the Harper government, is considering a run for the Liberals in West Vancouver-Sunshine Coast-Sea to Sky Country.

Former MP and current Senator Fabian Manning has not "ruled out" attempting to return to the lower house. Manning was the MP for Avalon and was the Tory incumbant who came the closest to hanging on to his seat in the face of the "ABC" campaign.
Kingsville mayor and Essex County warden Nelson Santos will be carrying the Liberal colours in the riding of Essex.
Former Hamilton mayor and 2008 candidate Larry Di Anna will not be contesting Hamilton East-Stoney Creek again.
In Argenteuil-Papineau-Mirabel, the Liberal candidate will be Daniel Fox, the son of former MP and cabinet minister Francis Fox. Daniel is also 25 years old, which I believe makes him the first nominated Young Liberal candidate.
2008 NDP candidate for Stormont-Dundas-South Glengarry Darlenne Jalbert says she will seek the parties nomination again. It would seem the nomination meeting will be Aug. 27th.
