Hunt offers 'heart and soul' to challenge Johnson

British Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt offered on Wednesday to put his "heart and soul" into challenging Boris Johnson in the final rounds of the Tory leadership contest. Minutes after securing 54 Tory MP votes and taking second place in the leadership race for the third straight time, Hunt described himself as the person "best-paced" to take on Johnson, who won the support of 143 Tory MPs in the latest round.

"Three times now MPs have chosen me as the person best-paced to take on Boris. If I make it to the final I will put my heart & soul into giving him the contest of his life: in politics today the unexpected often happens. The stakes too high to allow anyone to sail through untested," Hunt tweeted.
