If he's worried, he's not showing it. Health Minister Stephen Mandel is in a tough fight with the NDP to hold onto his seat in Edmonton-Whitemud, at least according to polls.
His political opponents say Mandel is dogged by "a lot of complaints about the health tax" introduced in the latest budget.
Mandel denies there's any real anger at the door over the tax and says there's no viable alternative to the PCs anyway.
"There's some frustration but for the most part I have time to explain to people what we're doing, they're very supportive. It's understanding what we can deliver vs the other two parties, one goes far to the right, the other goes far to the left," says Mandel.
As for polls, Mandel dismisses any idea he's in trouble.
