Liberals poised sweep Newfoundland and Labrador

It's an exciting night for Ken McDonald, the new MP for the Avalon riding.

Liberal Ken McDonald, the new MP for Avalon, enters the Trip Inn Lounge with his wife Trudy for his vistory party.

McDonald arrived at 9:30 p.m. to the Trip Inn Lounge in Kelligrews to a group of about two dozen supporters.

The cheers echoed through as he walked through the main doors with his wife Trudy by his side.

With more than half the votes so far, McDonald appeared confident he would win the seat early on.

He confirmed he believes Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau was a big part of the push to win the seat.

When asked the difference between being a municipal leader versus a federal representative, McDonald was quick to respond that municipal issues are on a much smaller scale, like pot holes.

Although this will be a new role for him, he is already prepared to take on the challenge.

Organizations: Trip Inn Lounge

Geographic location: Kelligrews

    SO ironic that McDonald would say "municipal issues are on a much smaller scale, like pot holes" CBS mayor he never got those fixed! CBS roads are in terrible terrible condition for vehicles and pedestrians! What will you actually accomplish I wonder Mr . McDonald. Can you get the potholes fixed & sidewalks for CBS now??
