New Democratic Party candidate Nicole Goehring has been declared as winner in the Edmonton-Castle Downs riding—a seat previously held by PC candidate Thomas Lukaszuk. Lukaszuk has represented the Edmonton-Castle Downs riding since 2001 and has served in several cabinet positions.
“We, as a party, need to take stock of what it is that the party has misread; what the leadership has misread,” Lukaszuk said Tuesday night in an interview with Global’s Eric Szeto.
“Am I upset? You bet. I’m going to sleep like a baby tonight: wake up every 15 minutes and cry. But tomorrow morning, I’ll roll up my sleeves. I will want to meet with the party, and with volunteers and with grassroots and say, ‘Guys, Albertans have sent us a clear signal. Let’s reconstitute.'”
The riding’s support has swung between the Liberal and PC parties in the past.
- Progressive Conservative: Thomas Lukaszuk (Incumbent)
- NDP: Nicole Goehring
