OTTAWA—Conservative heavyweight John Baird has confirmed he's thinking about throwing his hat into the federal party's leadership ring.

The former minister told Global's "The West Block" on Sunday that's he's taking calls and weighing his options.

Baird, who served as a senior minister in Stephen Harper's government, is being urged to run by Conservatives who are dissatisfied with the current lineup, in which his former cabinet colleague, Peter MacKay, is presumed to be the front-runner.
