The first round of voting for the NDP Leadership starts on Monday and Charlie Angus says he is exactly where he wants to be.

The Timmins-James Bay MP says it’s been a long nine-month race, but he is still working hard.

Angus says polls show Ontario MPP Jagmeet Singh has a slight lead, but he believes in his grassroots approach.

Angus says his team has done a great job raising the money and building local teams across the country.

He says he still has a lot of traveling to do, including going the National Showcase in Hamilton this Sunday.

The first round votes will be revealed on October 1st.
