Manitoba PC Party candidate Blaine Pedersen has won re-election in Midland.

First elected in 2007, the Elm Creek resident, 65, easily defeated second-place NDP candidate Cindy Friesen and Manitoba Liberal candidate Julia Sisler with more poll results to come.

Pedersen said this campaign was a bit more challenging as Midland’s boundaries changed to include Domain, La Salle, Oak Bluff, Brunkild, Sanford and Starbuck, all of which were previously located within Morris constituency.

Formerly the Minister of Growth, Enterprise and Trade, Pedersen said he can’t say whether or not he will be continuing in that role, but is positive about economic growth in Midland.

"We’ve really got momentum in terms of economic development."

Results are based on Elections Manitoba’s preliminary figures.
