Harper at risk in Canada election
Bracing for a potential upset in Canada, Liberal candidate Justin Trudeau casts his ballot for prime minister in a race that is too close to call.
The son of a former prime minister is seen as the front runner in recent polls.
But conservative Prime Minister Stephen Harper has been written off before — and exceeded expectations by winning a majority in 2011.
Now there’s a virtual tie between Conservatives, Liberals and left-leaning New Democratic Party. The NDP, was early favorite to win — but has faded to third place. But it could play a major power-broker role if the race goes down to the wire.
