The first B.C. Conservative out of the gates in the party's leadership race picked up three endorsements over the weekend.
Dan Brooks, who ran for the party in Nechako Lakes in May, recently moved to Kamloops to challenge for leadership of the B.C. Conservatives. He operates a seasonal resort in northern B.C.
Brooks announced his candidacy here on Thursday.
Brooks announced he has backing from three party members, including Barry Sikora, who owns a printing company on Annacis Island. Also backing Brooks' leadership are Bob Bray and Nathan Giede.
But a key organizer in Kamloops said Sunday it's too early for him to endorse any party candidate.
The Conservatives will hold a leadership convention April 11.
"I've been clear up to this point I won't endorse or support anyone until I see the full field," said Alan Forseth.
Forseth is a regional director with the party who helped form local riding associations.
He expects several people to vie for the leadership after John Cummins resigned following the party's disappointing results in May.
The two local ridings are expected to figure prominently in the leadership ballot, Forseth said.
