Liberals could nearly sweep Atlantic provinces: polls

Seamus O’Regan is only the most recent Atlantic Canadian to throw his lot in with the federal Liberals, as the region looks set to swing over to the party in dramatic fashion.

The former host of CTV’s Canada AM will be seeking the Liberal nomination in the riding of St. John’s South-Mount Pearl, currently represented by NDP MP Ryan Cleary. If polls in the province and the wider region are any indication, Mr. O’Regan has a good chance of winning it.
