ADQ doesn't want Harper staffer to lead it

I mentioned a few weeks ago that failed Conservative candidate Myriam Taschereau has resigned her position as a senior communications adviser in Stephen Harper's PMO to run for the leadership of the l'Action démocratique du Québec (ADQ).

It seems her read of Quebec's political situation was just as sound as the rest of her PMO colleagues though, as Quebec media reports she's dropping out of the ADQ race. She had the support of Conservative rainmaker and Harper fundraiser Senator Leo Housakos, but she didn't have the support of ADQ organizers and membership at large.

Makes one wonder just how many friends the Harper crowd has left in Quebec, if even the ADQ won't take them seriously.
