Hargrave was selected as the Saskatchewan Party candidate in a heavily contested nomination meeting, which was conducted in the Prince Albert Exhibition Centre. Hargrave based his nomination strategy on an economic focus, saying that a strong economy would also include access to healthcare and other public goods, and suggesting that his own experience in business would make him a good representative.[2]
