Doug Ford surprised many people this morning when he announced that he will not make a run at the provincial Tory leadership. The former city councillor and Toronto mayoral candidate announced that he wasn't interested in making a bid for the role on account of the strong candidates currently in the race and in particular his support for Christine Elliott.
This despite the fact that Ford Nation might be at its most powerful on the provincial level given the strong support both Ford brothers have received from suburban areas in Toronto. Ford has mulled a move to provincial politics for sometime, and did reveal that he has no intention to leave politics at this time. He cited the need to take "a little break" as one of the other reasons behind his decision.
