Two more Johnson backers: Greg Knight and James Duddridge. That's 11 today, taking him up to 40, with Gove and Hunt still on 28
Johnson has opened up a commanding lead among declared Tory MPs (here broken down by Leave & Remain)
Even if Raab picked up Esther McVey's 6 and Andrea Leadsom's 3, he'd be 9 behind Johnson
61% of Tory MPs have declared (190), as candidates, potential candidates or supporters; 12 candidates have the two nominations they need; a further 6 are potential candidates
My tallies are higher than @GuidoFawkes's because they include names on @ConHome lists, which stuffy MSM Staines is too proud to copy
After Johnson's big day yesterday, adding 11 Tory MPs to his publicly declared total, Hunt adds 3: Liam Fox, Greg Hands & Huw Merriman
Latest combined totals of @ConHome & @GuidoFawkes lists (including candidates themselves) by Leave/Remain
Rory Stewart 4
James Cleverly 3
Andrea Leadsom 2
