GANDER, N.L. - The leader of the Liberal Party in Newfoundland and Labrador says a fall election is on his mind as he and other party members head into a party convention this weekend.
Dwight Ball says he thinks voters deserve a chance to vote on an incoming Tory premier who hasn't been elected.
Ball says the party convention in Gander will be a part of the party's efforts to build a campaign machine that can fight a general election as soon as premier-designate Frank Coleman calls it.
The Liberals are leading in the polls, and the party recently held a successful fundraiser in St. John's where about 500 people showed up for a $500-a-plate dinner.
John Allan, who will take over as provincial Liberal party president during the weekend, said money is a big part of the party's mandate in the next year.
The party still has about $800,000 in debt.
