Inside Peter MacKay's campaign: Frustration, confusion and lack of coherence - 2020-02-05
OTTAWA—Conservative leadership hopeful Peter MacKay is already looking to bring in new blood to his leadership campaign less than two weeks after launching a bid to replace Andrew Scheer that has been dogged by missteps.
Three sources told the Star on Wednesday the MacKay campaign is disorganized and doesn't have a formal structure, with frustration growing among insiders working on his leadership bid. The sources spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss internal campaign matters.
The internal frustration among MacKay backers comes after a series of unforced errors put the perceived front-runner's campaign on the defensive, including staffers shutting down an on-camera interview with CTV earlier this week.
