Ellerton plans to return in next federal vote for Timmins-James Bay

Morgan Ellerton says he’ll be back.

The rookie Conservative party candidate is second to New Democrat Charlie Angus in Timmins-James Bay.  As of late last night, he had around 28 percent of the vote, compared to Angus’s 36 percent.

The 33-year-old nurse says he’s leaning towards running again, pending discussions with his wife and his employer.

“After this tremendous turnout and obviously I mean, I was completely humbled by how much the people have entrusted me at this point,” he says. “So I think I need to give it a second shot.”

Ellerton says he’s not interested in next June’s Ontario election. He still has his eye on the federal seat.

He hints at possibly doing better this time, if not for the small-C conservative People’s Party of Canada, and its Timmins-James Bay candidate, Stephen MacLeod.

“Looking at how well the PPC did here,” Ellerton remarks, “I think the Conservatives have a bit of just revisiting and making sure that we can bring them back into the fold and time to unite.”
