Who will amass the signatures they need? Photo: Getty NSSign UpGet the New Statesman's Morning Call email. Andy Burnham, Liz Kendall, Yvette Cooper and Jeremy Corbyn have all made it onto the ballot paper for the Labour leadership race. Burnham, the bookies' favourite, squares off against Liz Kendall, from the party's modernising tendency, Cooper, from the party's centre, and Corbyn, from the party's left flank. The Labour leadership hopefuls needed 35 MPs to nominate them in order to run. Mary Creagh was unable to secure the support she needed and dropped out. Neither the departed leader, Ed Miliband, or the acting leader, Harriet Harman, nominated a candidate. The Chief Whip, Rosie Winterton, and the chair of the PLP, Jon Cryer, also stayed out of the race, as did Lindsay Hoyle, the deputy speaker of the Commons, and Ian Murray, the shadow secretary of state for Scotland. A further 22 MPs also refrained from nominating anyone. Who nominated who?
