He calls McGraw a very close friend who he asked McGraw to run his political campaigns adding they had lunch together last week.

McFarlane says his strength was working behind the scenes adding he always wanted to help the people who could make a difference.

New Brunswick PC Party President Jason Stephen calls McGraw a bridge builder adding he was just made a lifetime member of the Saint John Lancaster riding at the party's AGM
last fall.
