Global News projects UCP Michaela Glasgo win in Brooks-Medicine Hat.
Below is a full list of the candidates in the riding of Brooks-Medicine Hat, an area covering a south-east section of the province, spanning as far south as Medicine Hat, east to the provincial border, and as far north as Trefoll.
This will be a riding to watch in the 2019 election after NDP incumbent Bob Wanner announced he would not seek re-election.
Wanner was first elected in 2015 after joining the campaign only three weeks before the election. He served as Speaker in the legislature.
In December 2018, Wanner announced he wouldn’t run in the 2019 election.
NDP: Lynn MacWilliam
United Conservative Party: Michaela Glasgo
Alberta Party: Jim Black
Alberta Independence Party: Collin Pacholek
Alberta Liberal Party: Jamah Bashir Farah
Independent: Todd Beasley
Wanner was part of the 2015 orange crush, which saw the Alberta NDP stomp out a 44-year Progressive Conservative dynasty in the province.
The Medicine Hat riding was solidly Progressive Conservative until the 2015 election, dating all the way back to 1979.
The Wildrose took the seat in 2012 with Blake Pedersen, who later crossed the floor to the PC party in December 2014.
