ALEXANDER STAFFORD will apparently launch his bid to become the next Conservative Future National Chairman this Saturday at an undisclosed location in Central London, TBG can reveal.
One source from inside the Ealing Councillor's camp told TBG there will be, "a lot of supporters present. He is keen to reach out to as many people as possible."
TBG revealed that serious contender Cllr Stafford was to run for National Chairman in the early hours of this morning.
The contenders are lining up fast
HOTLY TIPPED Tory activist Alexandra Paterson will launch her bid to succeed Oliver Cooper as Conservative Future (CF) National Chairman this morning, as first reported on theblueguerilla, TBG can exclusively reveal.
After a week of rumours, speculation and backroom deals the favourite to take the CF crown, Paterson, is expected to announce her candidacy in the lead role for a CF #RoadTrip2015 slate and launch her campaign website at around 11am.
Paterson has launched her campaign & website, as predicted, with an open letter to CF'ers, a comprehensive RoadTrip2015 slate and boasts endorsements from high level politicos including Parliament Street CEO Patrick Sullivan.
Paterson, 29, says she wants to expand #RoadTrip2015 and have CF focus in 40/40 Tory target seats leading up to the 2015 General Election, as well as a monthly online Google Hangout session which members can use to contact the Executive personally regardless of their location in the UK. You can view her manifesto here.
Alexandra told TBG - "I am delighted to announce that I will be standing as National Chairman of Conservative Future.
"We are less than a year away from the General Election and CF needs to be an effective and well organised machine.
"I believe that I am the right person to lead CF as Chairman. Along with the rest of the team, I am one of the key members of the successful RoadTrip 2015 project and helped organise the campaign day which brought over 300 RoadTrip2015 activists to canvass and leaflet in Newark.
"I am originally from the North West and have been a long term activist for the party, most recently as Greater Manchester CF Chairman in 2013/14.
"The rest of the team joining me are Stephen Canning who is running for Deputy Chair Political, India Brummit who is running for Deputy Chair Membership and Annabel Shaw who is running for Deputy Chair Membership. They are all dedicated and hard working RoadTrip2015 Co-ordinators.
"I also give thanks to Oliver Cooper who has done an amazing job as Chairman over the past 18 months and wish him well with his future plans.
"I would like to ask you for your support for my campaign.
"Please visit the TeamPaterson website at www.teampaterson.co.uk"
Conservative Future National Chairman Candidate Jacob Wilkinson in Policy Row as Website Taken Offline.
JACOB WILKINSON announced his intention to run for Tory Youth National Chairman yesterday in the other place, only for his website to be seemingly abandoned and sensationally taken offline just minutes later.
The disastrous start to his campaign apparently came as Conservative Future (CF), the Tory youth wing, members were left shocked and dismayed at the content of his website and policy announcements.
One Tory told TBG - "If he can't run a website how can he run CF?"
Wilkinson told TBG he was having website problems as his, "techy mate has gone on a 3 week bender to Magaluf."

CONSERVATIVE FUTURE (CF) National Chairman Oliver Cooper will not seek re-election in August's ballot after a sensational & successful coup by activists, as reported exclusively on TBG last week. Cooper has hailed CF's "greater impact" on the campaign trail, lambasting #RoadTrip2015 a "stellar success" in an "announcement" on Facebook.
CF Chairman Cooper said the organisations "successes need to be built on with a new team", supporting campaign efforts above all.
"Most importantly, CF is having a greater impact on the campaign trail, from local and regional campaign days to the stellar success of RoadTrip2015. Our successes over the past year have been great, but the year leading up to a general election, is a new challenge, and these successes need to be built on with a new team. As such, despite so many people asking me to re-stand – which I still take as a form of flattery – I will not be seeking re-election as National Chairman."
A huge row allegedly erupted last week at TubeTrip after Cooper was supposedly asked not to stand in the elections, but is said to have backed down to activists and agreed to depart on good terms whilst endorsing the campaign which has ultimately led to the popular Chairman's downfall, #RoadTrip2015.
A FLURRY of activity has hit Conservative Future (CF) since the official announcement of National Elections yesterday, exclusively revealed by TBG last Monday.
Today TBG can reveal Ealing Councillor & serious contender Alexander Stafford may be set to make a sensational bid to Lead CF.
One Tory insider claims - "I have heard from very good sources that Alexander Stafford is likely to put his name forward in the coming days for national CF Chairman."
Alexander has been involved with the party for many years having been North West London Area Chairman and was elected a councillor in Ealing earlier this year. He has close links within the Tory Party after working in Parliament for both Andrew Rosindell and Owen Paterson during his time as Secretary of State for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs. Stafford currently works in Public Affairs.
The sources also claims - "Alex is gaining support from members who have worked in Parliament and those who do not normally involve themselves with CF politics but are members of the party and eligible to vote in the elections."
