Hearn elected in St. John's South

ST. JOHN'S - Conservative Loyola Hearn has been elected in a close race in St. John's South, defeating his Liberal rival.

With 39.6 per cent of the vote, Hearn defeated Siobhan Coady by 1,452 votes. Coady won 35 per cent of the vote, followed by NDP candidate Peg Norman, with almost 24 per cent.

Hearn, who led the Conservative party in the House of Commons during the leadership race, has been considered the front-runner in the riding, despite spirited campaigns by Coady and Norman.

The race became tighter when Hearn lost a large traditionally Conservative chunk of his old St. John's West riding with redistribution.
