Results of the first ballot voting in today’s Alberta Liberal leadership vote:
Dr. Raj Sherman was first elected as the Progressive Conservative MLA for Edmonton-Meadowlark in 2008. In 2010, he sent an email to Premier Ed Stelmach, his caucus colleagues, and medical contacts that led to him being kicked out of the PC caucus. He sat as an Independent MLA while joining the Liberal Party leadership race earlier this year.
Dr. Sherman defeated four-term Liberal MLAs Hugh MacDonald and Laurie Blakeman.
