Dominic Raab eliminated from Conservative Leadership Race

Dominic Raab has been eliminated from the Conservative Leadership Race after receiving the fewest number of votes in the second vote by Conservative MPs on Tuesday.

The results were as follows;

  • Michael Gove 41 votes
  • Jeremy Hunt 46 votes
  • Sajid Javid 33 votes
  • Boris Johnson 126 votes
  • Dominic Raab 30 votes
  • Rory Stewart 37 votes

Boris Johnson remains the frontrunner in the contest, but the race for second place on the ballot for Conservative Party members remains truly open. Rory Stewart appears to have the most momentum, gaining a significant number of votes from last Thursday.
