Elliot concedes to Ford

After almost a day, Christine Elliot has conceded to Doug Ford in the race for the PC party leadership.

Elliot had originally contested Ford's victory on Saturday saying there were "serious irregularities" in the vote.

 Elliott won both the popular vote and the narrow majority of Ontario's 124 ridings but Ford took more electoral votes.

In fact, Elliot won the popular vote in every region of the province, except Niagara, Hamilton and the GTA.

But after meeting with Ford yesterday Elliott said she was ``confident in the results''.

She says she will run in the provincial election for the Tories, and Ford responded saying she is exactly the kind of devoted public servant Ontario needs right now.
