Ginny Devine Endorses Dewar For NDP Leader
January 26th, 2012
WINNIPEG – Today, respected New Democrat, pollster and former Chief of Staff to Manitoba Premier Howard Pawley, Ginny Devine added her name to Paul Dewar’s growing list of supporters.
“I’ve worked with winning politicians across the country and the thing that they all have in common with Paul is an ability to connect with and really understand the things that matter to families,” said Devine. “With his ideas, passion and charisma, Paul is building an incredible team that’s ready to win the next election.”
As President of Viewpoints Research, Devine has worked closely with several NDP provincial sections and the federal NDP, including in the 2011 breakthrough election.
“Ginny is a smart political strategist, a friend and someone whose advice and support I’m grateful for,” said Dewar. “We’re building a team that knows what it takes to win those next 70 seats and Ginny brings a lot of experience to the table.”
Dewar noted that Devine joins a strong team of NDP strategists from Manitoba including Bob Dewar who ran Gary Doer’s winning campaigns in 1999 and 2003 and Michael Balagus who ran the Manitoba NDP’s third and fourth consecutive winning campaigns in 2007 and 2011.
