Doug Ford conservative

Doug Ford toys with run for Conservative leadership

He didn't win last year's mayoral race, nor did he run for the top spot of the Ontario PC party. If Harper were to ever step down, however, Doug Ford may consider seeking leadership of the federal conservatives.

"Doug said if it's a minority government, Harper's going to step down. He wants to run for leadership," said Ward 2 councillor Rob Ford, according to a Bloomberg News report.

Doug supports the current prime minister in the upcoming October 19 election and hopes he'll be leading the country for the next 20 years. Although, as Bloomberg notes, running for conservative leadership isn't completely off the table for the elder Ford brother.

"I never say never in politics. But as of right now I am supporting the prime minister 100 percent. I'm going to be out there -- and have been out there -- door-knocking and helping out every which way I can," the former city councillor said of a possible run.
