Don’t rule Rona Ambrose out of the Conservative leadership race just yet. The former cabinet minister is still being approached by people who want her to run which is why she has not issued an official statement on her intentions, say sources. There has been much speculation that she won’t run, based mainly on the fact that she has not been making calls to organize a leadership team. On Wednesday, La Presse reported that she was not running. A source with direct knowledge told the National Post on Wednesday afternoon that Ambrose has “not yet made a final decision on whether to run.” Prominent conservatives such as Alberta Premier Jason Kenney and former Saskatchewan premier Brad Wall have thrown their support behind Ambrose. “She would be a brilliant leader,” Kenney said in a December interview.
