Legislators Raj Chouhan and Spencer Chandra Herbert look like they will be sitting the provincial New Democrat leadership race out. The reason: in an interview with Public Eye, Mr. Chandra Herbert confirmed he and Mr. Chouhan are each one-half of a neutral committee responsible for ensuring caucus members continue to work well together during the race. "I won't be pulling a Kevin Krueger," Mr. Chandra Herbert quipped, referring to the Liberal MLA's decision to step down as co-chair of the party's leadership vote and convention committee to endorse leadership candidate George Abbott. Mr. Chouhan is caucus's deputy whip, while Mr. Chandra Herbert is its party liaison.
