As the B.C. Liberal Party leadership campaign hits the home stretch in the last two weeks, frontrunner Christy Clark is making a second stop in the Okanagan to drum up support.

With the party voting to use a weighted system of selecting a leader in the Feb 26 vote, a move that is seen to help her challenger Shuswap MLA George Abbott, Clark is attempting to shore up her support in the Interior with several stops in the Okanagan today and in the Kootenays tomorrow.

Clark was scheduled to be in Kelowna this morning, along with her new membership chairwoman, former CTV news anchor Pamela Martin.

After a brief appearance at the Best Western Hotel, Clark was scheduled to make stops in Penticton and Osoyoos this afternoon, before heading to Nelson, Trail, Creston and Cranbrook tomorrow,

This is Clark’s second visit to the Okanagan since the leadership campaign began.

She visited Vernon and Kelowna just before Christmas.

Even though Clark voted in favour the weighted system that gives more say to rural ridings than the previous one-member one-vote system, the former Liberal deputy premier under Gordon Campbell and cabinet minister turned radio talk show host is still seen as the frontrunner in the six-person race.
