Did she find the 100K entry fee in an envelope? Caroline Mulroney to enter PC Leadership race Monday

Caroline Mulroney will officially join PC race Monday, source says

A source with Caroline Mulroney’s campaign says the Toronto lawyer and businesswoman will officially jump into the race to lead Ontario’s Progressive Conservatives on Monday, days after reports first emerged suggesting she was eyeing the party’s top job.

Mulroney, the daughter of former prime minister Brian Mulroney, was pegged as a contender to replace Patrick Brown as soon as the contest began, despite having never held political office.

The 43-year-old mother of four has hinted she intends to run for the leadership, thanking those who supported her candidacy on Twitter over the weekend but stopping short of formally announcing her plans.
