Former interim Conservative leader Rona Ambrose will not run to replace Andrew Scheer. In a video posted to her Facebook account on Wednesday evening, Ambrose explained her decision not to enter the race to replace Scheer, despite heavy speculation that she was considering a return to political life in Ottawa. “I want to thank you for all your messages of encouragement and support to run for the leadership of the Conservative Party of Canada. It is humbling to be considered at all — because I love our party, I love the people in it and I love our country,” she wrote in the statement, which accompanied the video. Ambrose noted that she has “really struggled with the decision to return to political life” but intends to stay in the private sector.
