A Wildrose Party candidate is predicting no "last minute collapse" in the party's fortunes this election.
Jeremy Nixon lost in 2012 when his party's support plummeted in the last three days of the campaign after some verbal gaffes left the party vulnerable to attacks from the PCs.
Nixon is running in the riding of Calgary Klein and says there are two big factors suggesting there won't be a 'last minute collapse' this time around:
"The response is pretty strong out there. Last election especially here in Calgary Klein, we did very well, we had a lot of support. We only lost by six percent. Already from what I'm hearing at the doors people are committed to us. In Brian Jean we have a very strong leader, good political background, good business background and that's different than what we had last time, we had someone who was a rookie at all this."
There is still time for attitudes to change but polls up to the midpoint of the campaign suggest Albertans are open to change this election, and are considering ending the 43-year old PC dynasty if they believe there's a viable alternative to the Tories.
