Last week, the Times Colonist's Darron Kloster reported Dodd's Furniture Ltd. owner Gordie Dodd would be running for the provincial Liberal nomination in Saanich South. But, according to Mr. Kloster, Mr. Dodd is "facing some resistance from the local riding association, which told him at an initial meeting on Monday they were leaning toward former broadcaster and chamber of commerce president Robin Adair to carry the Liberal colours." But that might not be Mr. Dodd's only handicap. After all, during the recent civic election, the furniture store owner recorded an endorsement for successful New Democrat-favoured mayoral candidate Dean Fortin, praising him as "dedicated," "community-minded," and a "tireless guy." And that endorsement might not sit well with some Liberals.
