Cameron said last month he was stepping down after voters rejected his bid to keep Britain in the European Union. Interior minister May is up against junior energy minister Andrea Leadsom in a leadership contest due to be decided by Sept. 9 in a vote by the Conservative Party's 150,000 grassroots members.
