McLoughlin declares for Leo Varadkar

Fine Gael TD for Sligo-Leitrim, Tony Mc Loughlin, has today announced his intention to support Social Protection Minister Leo Varadkar in the Fine Gael leadership race.

The Fine Gael Party Assistant Whip said that he believes both candidates are of a particularly high calibre and both could lead the party to new heights if given the opportunity to do so.

Deputy McLoughlin says he has always found Minister Varadkar to be very approachable, whatever the localised issue he had contacted him about.
