With a crowd packed into a room at the Capital Hotel and glossy campaign material on offer, businesswoman Cathy Bennett launched her bid to be the next leader of the Liberal Party.
Bennett's campaign material promised "Leading the way forward," and when some spoke to the roughly 100 supporters in the room, she said, "The Liberal Party is going to make a comeback in Newfoundland and Labrador."
Nominations close Friday for the Liberal leadership. Interim Leader Dwight Ball, MHA Jim Bennett and former MHA Danny Dumaresque are already in the race.
"We must give voice to those who don't have a voice," Bennett said, talking about a balance between fiscal responsibility and social justice.
