The head of the South Okanagan-West Kootenay Conservatives says support appears split between the two candidates.
President of the Constituency Association Meagan Saliken says Penticton Realtor Marshall Neufeld is better known in our part of the big riding.
But Rick de Jong has a support base on the western side.
Members voted in Castlegar and Grand Forks Thursday and the final result will be known Saturday after the Penticton vote.
Never one to miss a campaigning opportunity nor a jibe at retiring NDP MP Alex Atamanenko – former Castlegar-based Tory MP Jim Gouk has endorsed Neufeld saying he can quote, “end the period of NDP neglect.”
