The race for leadership of the federal Conservatives begins officially today.
The party released the rules for the contest late Saturday, and candidates have just over two months to pull together $300,000 and get 3,000 signatures in order to have their names on the ballot.
The leadership race had begun unofficially in mid-December, when current leader Andrew Scheer announced he'd quit as soon as his replacement was chosen.
Those likely to enter the contest include current MPs Pierre Poilievre and Erin O'Toole, former cabinet minister Peter MacKay and former Quebec premier Jean Charest.
The Conservatives will elect their next leader at a convention on June 27 in Toronto.
