The race for the federal liberal leadership is expected to get another high-profile candidate.

MP and former astronaut Marc Garneau is expected to launch his bid today.

The Montreal MP has scheduled a news conference this morning in his home riding.

Garneau would join a crowded field that includes fellow Montreal MP and leadership favourite Justin Trudeau.

The 63-year-old Garneau was first elected to the House of Commons in 2008 and was re-elected in 2011.

The Quebec City native became the first Canadian in space when he flew aboard the Challenger shuttle in 1984.
