Today, in an interview with Moose FM, Peace River South MLA Blair Lekstrom said he wouldn't rule out running to be a MP in the next federal election. But, during last week's conference call with reporters, Mr. Lekstrom also said he would be running for re-election in his riding. So how does Mr. Lekstrom, who recently resigned from cabinet and the Liberal caucus, square those two statements? Well, in an interview with Public Eye, "Like I said, I won't rule things out. I don't know what tomorrow is going to bring. But my plan right now - people are saying what are your plans - it is to continue as the MLA and run in 2013." Former 24 hours columnist Alex Tsakumis was the first to float a report that Mr. Lekstrom could replace Conservative Prince George-Peace River MP Jay Hill.
