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.

Results show Dr Jennings did well in Lithgow however fell short in Bathurst with Mr Cobb winning approximately 72 per cent of the region’s votes on a two-party preferred basis.

Dr Jennings is fearful Calare will not see a lot of Mr Cobb over the next three years and says he is keen to run again, believing Calare remains a winnable seat for Labor in the future.
