Man flip-flops on decision to run; Liberals short 1 candidate

Phillip Mullins decided yesterday morning that he wanted to run for the Liberal party in Mount Pearl North. By the afternoon he had been approved by the party, and was the selected candidate, ready to go for the election in 2 weeks time. “I am officially the liberal candidate for Mt. Pearl North!” he tweeted. By dinner time, he had pulled out of the race. “After talking with my family and considering the personal and work commitments I have, I will be declining the nomination for Mt. Pearl [North].” That leaves the Liberal Party 1 candidate short of the full 48-riding slate, with just two days to go until registration closes. At this point, the Liberals will be searching for any name to put on the ballot; Mount Pearl North is strong PC territory and the party doesn’t realistically expect to have a chance there.
