WINNIPEG - NDP Leader Wab Kinew has been re-elected in the constituency of Fort Rouge in the Manitoba election.

The seat south of downtown Winnipeg has long been an NDP stronghold.

Green party Leader James Beddome, who lives in the area, was trying to topple Kinew.

Beddome has run unsuccessfully five times — each time in a different constituency.
