Fabian Manning has announced he has quit the senate and will be running for the conservatives in the riding of Avalon.
Senator Beth Marshall will be his campaign manager.
Manning said that his first love and the real decision-making is in elected politics and not in the senate.
At his announcement in Holyrood this evening there were several provincial cabinet ministers and MHAs, making it clear that the ABC (Anything But Conservative) campaign is a thing of the past.
