CALGARY — Documents show Alberta’s opposition United Conservative Party raised more in the fourth quarter of last year than the governing New Democrats did in all of 2018.
New figures from Elections Alberta say the UCP brought in more than $3.9 million from October to December, with a third coming from individual contributions of $250 and under.
The UCP, helmed by former federal cabinet minister Jason Kenney, raised nearly $6.7 million for the whole year.
The NDP reported a 2018 total of $3.4 million and a fourth quarter amount of $1.5 million.
By law, an election must be held in March, April or May of this year.
That means Premier Rachel Notley can drop the writ to start a four-week campaign as early as the beginning of February.
