Jean Charest is thinking about running to replace Andrew Scheer as federal Conservative Party leader, according to sources close to the former Quebec premier.

Those sources told Radio-Canada, CBC's French language service, that Charest is consulting with his family.

Charest hadn't been seriously considering a leadership run before several sitting and former MPs reached out and urged him to do so, according to sources.
