I would like to see how much money each of them spent on political campaigning, espically Cathy Bennett. Just for the fact that her company "Bennett family restruarents" aka McDonald's can only manage to pay their staff 10.75 an hour...

The ballot by ballot district results can be found at the following link. ball did better in many Avalon region seats than Antle or Bennett including some St. John's seats. here's the link to the results: http://nlliberals.ca/news/election-results/

Looks like Antle did better in the eastern region and Ball did better in the west and Labrador. Poor Dumaresque was never in it.

All I can say is; Thank God Antle didn't win. He's just another successful rich local businessman on a power trip. He decided to run for the leadership on the last day because I believe he actually thought he could be the next premier of NL. Lucky for us the people were smart enough not to allow this to come to fruition. The guy has no experience in politics. He may be a smart business guy but I really don't believe he is Premier material. I predict he will run in the 2015 election in either St. John's East to try and take advantage of George Murphy's recent bad press or Signal Hill-Quidi Vidi (his parents old neighborhood) to try dethrone Lorraine Michael. I know he ran before in St. John's East and lost. Not sure what the outcome will be in 2015 but I do know he will have his work cut out for him. Best of luck to you Mr. Antle. You will need it. Cheers..!!

Couldn't agree more about Paul Antle. He comes across as unlike able, full of himself, absolutely no charisma. Thinks he's the next Danny Williams. Sorry, Paul, but you're no Danny and you never will be. Try a little humility next time. Do the REAL work necessary for the job.

“The people of our province want change." Uh huh. So they decide not to select a new leader, hold a private leadership contest to avoid any embarrassment, and have a non-democratic election. Perhaps he should have finished that sentence up with "but just not yet."

Good points all around. The party debt was not very well addressed while ball was interim leader so it remains to be seen how much money he can raise as official leader. That being said, if the polls hold for the Liberals it should be easier to attract money as everybody jumps on a winner's bandwagon. The really interesting bit would have been the district by district breakdowns which have yet to be released. The thinking amongst the party faithful was Ball had a very good chance because the Cathy Bennett-Siobhan Coady group would split the Avalon region support with the George Fury-Paul Antle group and Ball took rural NL. Too bad the district breakdown was not released.
