St. John's South—Mount Pearl
A traditionally Conservative riding, St John's South—Mount Pearl was taken by NDP candidate Ryan Cleary in 2011, who had been defeated in a close NDP-Liberal race in 2008. This riding includes the south end of Newfoundland's capital city and nearby areas. The incumbent, Cleary, is seeking re-election in October. The Liberal party is touting Seamus O'Regan as one of their star candidates.
