September 26, 2011 Toronto – Freedom Party leader Paul McKeever will face off against Liberal leader Dalton McGuinty in blogger Zach Bussey’s “Sexiest Election Candidate” poll. By 12:01 AM on September 26, voters had preferred McKeever over former Sault Ste. Marie Liberal MPP David Orazietti, leaving McKeever and McGuinty as one of four pairs of men left competing in round 3 of the entertaining online poll. Progressive Conservative leader Tim Hudak lost to Liberal Energy Minister Brad Duguid in round 1. Duguid lost to Liberal Karl Walsh in Round 2.
“I think this sort of poll has the potential to increase awareness that an election is underway”, says Freedom Party leader, Paul McKeever. “And, at a time when Tim Hudak’s Progressive Conservatives are rightly regarded as nothing more than Liberals in blue, if this fun little poll helps voters to understand that voting Freedom is the only effective alternative to the McGuinty Liberals, that’s a good thing. Let’s face it: Freedom is sexy.”
Round 3 pits voters in the riding of Elgin-Middlesex-London (McKeever’s riding) against voters in the riding of Ottawa South (McGuinty’s riding). “Elgin-Middlesex-London is ready for the challenge”, says McKeever.
