Their main concern is that current frontrunners to head May’s Conservative Party say they will get Brexit done at any cost.
Johnson’s main challenges will come from former Brexit secretary Dominic Raab — viewed as an even more committed eurosceptic — and Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt.
The contest is being held against the backdrop of European Parliament elections that the new Brexit Party of the anti-EU populist Nigel Farage is expected to win with about a third of the vote.
The concession was designed to help ram her withdrawal agreement through parliament on the fourth attempt.
“I am conscious the Conservative Party wants someone who they believe is very enthusiastic about Brexit,” Rudd told The Daily Telegraph.
The field grew on Saturday when Health Secretary Matt Hancock entered the race with a promise to take a more moderate approach.
International Development Secretary Rory Stewart is also positioning himself as a more consensus seeking alternative to Johnson.
Yet neither Hancock nor Stewart would say if they would push ahead with May’s current agreement or try to secure added concessions from Brussels.Read more: The Punch Newspapers

Breaking: Theresa May to resign as British Prime Minister | | The Nation Newspaper British Prime Minister Theresa May has announced her resignation, finally bowing to intense political pressure over the failure to deliver her signature policy -- Britain's withdrawal from the European Union. May said Friday she would quit as leader of the Conservative Party on June 7, but would stay on as Prime Minister until a successor is chosen. May was forced into making the announcement after losing the support of her Cabinet, many of whom were fed up with the ongoing turmoil over Brexit.
