KELOWNA — Cheers erupted from the crowd when Tracy Gray was announced as the federal Conservative candidate for the riding of Kelowna-Lake Country.

Due to party rules the numbers of votes are not allowed to be released, but Ernie Webber, president of the riding's Conservative Electoral District Association, says membership rates soared this campaign.

"The highest membership it's been in 20 years," Webber told reporters. "But turn out was average. We had two candidates that hustled like crazy."

In her speech Gray acknowledged the boots-on-the-ground work that Conservative members have been doing for the past seven months knocking door-to-door.

"My campaign has always been not only to win the nomination but to win the election," Gray said in her speech.

She also acknowledged Renee Wasylyk supporters in the room, saying she knows they were disappointed but that now is the time to come together.
