Jennings Remains Positive After Electoral Defeat

Labor candidate for Calare, Dr Jess Jennings is remaining positive despite his electoral defeat on Saturday night.

After seeing the National’s John Cobb secure a six per cent swing to retain the seat of Calare with a 16 per cent margin, Dr Jennings says he thought the results would be much worse.
