DPP will try to re-build local support

China Post says that according to its "understanding," Lee Ying-yuan (李應元) and Lin Chia-lung (林佳龍) will run to be Taipei County Commissioner and Taichung City Mayor respectively.

This report follows rumors that Hsieh wanted Lee Ying-yuan to run for the party chairmanship. I suspect that despite calls for someone in the younger camp to take over the reigns as party chairman, it's not that practical. It'll probably be an old heavy hitter who can win popular support and hold the party together.
