Murray Rankin has some serious weight behind his candidacy

Murray Rankin is interested in being the NDP candidate in the Victoria by-election and he is coming to the race with a lot of strong support.   Very importantly Guy Dauncey and John Fryer are backing him which is a huge blow for the Greens.

It is an impressive list but not yet a complete knock out for all of the competition, but with teh nomination on October 14th it could be very shortly.

NDP MLAs - only Carole James is not on the list
Rob Flemning
Lana Popham
John Horgan

Former MLAs

Ian Waddell

Past NDP staffers

John Fryer - he was campaign manager for Elizabeth May in Saanich-Gulf Islands but stepped down before the election.  He also ran for the federal Green council in 2010 and was elected as the council member for BC.
Robert Mitchell

I do not see any local councilors and the list for former MLAs from this region could include a lot more people
