HALIFAX – A Tory candidate who was dropped from the party for her online postings says she will run as an independent.

Jad Crnogorac (SUR’-no-go-rits) says she is waiting to hear back from Elections N-S on the process of running.

She was the Progressive Conservative candidate for Dartmouth South, but was dumped by the party over some of her Twitter comments.

Crnogorac had posted a joke about a date-rape drug known as “roofies.”

She also tweeted that white people not winning Black Entertainment Television awards was an example of “inequality.”

Leader Jamie Baillie says her postings crossed the line and that she could not represent the party.

Crnogorac says she decided to stay in the race after receiving “overwhelming support” from friends and family.
