Nats cruise to victory
The National Party has scored big wins in the seats of Tweed and Lismore at the NSW State Election, reducing Labor to a shadow of its former self.
A massive 18% swing in the seat of Tweed ensured Sitting National Geoff Provest won more than 60% of the primary vote.
By comparison Labor's Reece Byrnes was the first choice of just 21% of voters.
In the seat of Lismore, which covers Murwillumbah, the swing to sitting member Thomas George was much smaller at 9% but the story for Labor was a miserable one.
Labor candidate Andrew Moy copped a hiding as his party's vote fell to 13%, barely more than half what it received at the previous state election.
Green Susan Stock was a beneficiary with 21% of the vote.
