OTTAWA—The clock's now officially ticking down on the race to replace Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer, with the release of rules and deadlines for the contest likely to winnow down the field of contenders.

Nominations formally opened Monday and the dozen or so people who've thrown their names into the mix for the contest — including a former Quebec premier, a former cabinet minister and at least three current MPs — have begun the task of trying to mount campaigns in earnest.

Veteran Conservative organizer Georganne Burke, who is managing current MP Marilyn Gladu's effort to enter the race, said she's confident Gladu will make the cut, though it won't be simple.
