LONDON, Ont — NDP Leader Andrea Horwath says any talk of her supporting a Hudak government is “bullspit.”

In a quick campaign stop in London Tuesday, Horwath continued to target Liberal supporters, saying only the NDP can stop Tory Leader Tim Hudak in southwestern Ontario.

Liberal Leader Kathleen Wynne has pounced on Horwath in recent days for not explicitly ruling out supporting a minority Tory government.

Horwath said Wynne is desperately spreading “rumours.”

“Wynne is grasping at straws, saying all kind of things that are not true...it’s bullspit.”

But when asked if the NDP would support a minority Liberal government, as it did for 2 1/2 years before the campaign began, Horwath was vague. She said she’d respect the decision of voters in Thursday’s election.

“I’m not going to presuppose where voters are going to end up,” she said. “In a few days people will be at the ballot box, and I am looking forward to seeing what kind of future they want for this province.”
