Andrew Scheer's campaign is dealing with speculation about who might be his successor should the rookie Conservative leader fail to form a government after Oct. 21's federal election.

A fear that Scheer will be unable to seal the deal with voters is fuelling speculation that the Conservatives could be plunged into a leadership contest as early as April, when the party is expected to hold its annual convention in Toronto.

There have been rumblings that former leader Peter MacKay, who merged the Progressive Conservatives with Stephen Harper's Canadian Alliance to create the Conservative Party in 2003, will re-enter the political fray.
