The Blears bandwagon appears to be rolling, with 2 more MP endorsers today - Paddy Tipping (Deputy Leader of the House) and Stephen Ladyman (Transport Minister)
Helen Southworth, Rob Flello, Anne Snellgrove, George Howarth, Christine Russell and Adrian Bailey have also endorsed Hazel since I last wrote about this.
I understand there are a couple more names imminent and some of the bigger ministerial guns will be making their position clear as we get nearer to the start of the campaign.
More than one Westminster source has told me that the number of Hazel's MP supporters is now in the 50s and growing.
Expect some meat in terms of policy too, once the 3 May elections are out of the way.
Barry Gardiner MP added as endorser.
