Kevin Sorenson is optimistic about the the future of the united right in Alberta.

"Many of these [people] left for certain reasons and a strong mandate from both parties -- 95 per cent -- to try to bring it back together again, and I think that's positive," said the MP for Battle River-Crowfoot..

He continued, saying that he understands why the right voted so overwhelmingly in favour of unification.

"I think that is exactly where we were in 2000 when Federally we had the Progressive Conservative Party and then the Canadian Alliance Party. We realized that we could not continue to split the right, and so now they've united here in Alberta, and I think that's good."

When asked about the leadership race, Sorenson said it'll be good for people to get out and meet all four candidates and listen to their points.

"I think we'll stick to the high ground. I don't think we're going to be name calling and that, but there will be good debate and good strong debate, and there should be."

Sorenson hopes that the next leader of the United Conservative Party, if elected Premier, will maintain the strong voice that Alberta is known for in Ottawa.
