UK's Leadsom and Harper launch leadership bids

ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION.

Conservative lawmakers Andrea Leadsom and Mark Harper on Tuesday (June 11) became the latest contenders to set out their pitch to replace Theresa May as party leader and prime minister.

Both choose to focus on their visions for delivering Brexit.

One of 10 contenders to replace May, Leadsom says she has learned from her first attempt to win the top job in 2016.

Then, a misjudged comment about how being a mother better equipped her for the role helped kill off her campaign.

Harper said he would prefer for the UK to leave the EU with a deal, but leaving without a deal was preferable to not leaving at all.
