The Greens strong result in Legislative Council elections on Saturday is a boost to our federal campaign in Tasmania.
Clearly our messages of strong climate action, restoring integrity and trust in politics, tackling housing affordability, and putting dental and mental health into Medicare are resonating with voters.
There’s been a swing to the Greens across all three divisions, with the strongest in Elwick and we’re still in the race for Huon.
I want to warmly thank and congratulate our terrific candidates, Mitch Houghton in McIntyre, Hannah Bellamy in Elwick, and Gideon Cordover in Huon.
We are out there again today, talking to voters and listening to their concerns, and we’ll be doing this every day until 21 May.
