Federal Liberals in the Kildonan-St. Paul riding have chosen MaryAnn Mihychuk as their candidate for the next election.
Mihychuk defeated Victor Andres Tuesday evening during a nomination meeting at the Gateway Recreation Centre at Gateway Road and Bonner Avenue.
The riding is currently held by Conservative MP Joy Smith.
Michychuk ran for Winnipeg mayor in 2004 but lost to Sam Katz.
Before that, she was an NDP MLA for nine years, serving as a cabinet minister from 1999 to 2004.
The next federal election is expected to be held in 2015.
