ST. JOHN’S, N.L. — The Liberal candidate in a hotly contested riding in St. John’s, N.L., says he intends to keep his campaign positive after someone defaced one of his campaign billboards with the letters “NDP” spray-painted over his face.

Nick Whalen, the Liberal incumbent in St. John’s East, is in a tight race with well-known NDP candidate Jack Harris.

Harris, a former leader of the provincial NDP, held the riding between 2008 and 2015, when Whalen defeated him by a slim margin.
