Strange takes positives
The Labour Party’s candidate for Taupo, Jamie Strange, said on Sunday there were many positives he and his team could take from the 2014 campaign.
By Sunday lunchtime Strange had polled 6731 votes. He had continued to work full-time during the campaign, and said he believed the "dirty politics" issue had helped drown out Labour’s policies.
He said he was unsure about any future political aspirations.
