TORY LEADERSHIP DEBATE Confident in race to be Prime Minister


British prime ministerial hopefuls Michael Gove and Rory Stewart appeared confident ahead of Tuesday’s (June 18) second round in the Conservative Party leadership contest.

Gove leaving his house on the morning six contenders are whittled down by the party’s lawmakers, told reporters he is looking forward to ”making the case for a positive Conservative vision.”

On Monday Gove said if he became prime minister he would try to win changes to a Brexit deal by opening talks with German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar.

Stewart, leaving 10 Downing Street on Tuesday, said he still has a few more MPs to convince but was feeling ”energized.”
