The Herald wakes up

A full six days after the Wellington newspaper revealed that Scott Simpson is likely to stand for Tamaki, the Auckland newspaper has found it worth mentioning.

The Herald also revals that Rangitoto College principal Allan Peachey. He is also a formidable candidate, so the race will be fascinating.

National Party rules are that a winning candidate needs to get over 50% of the delegate’s votes. So this means that it is quite possible there will be multiple ballots on the selection night with the lowest polling candidate dropping out, and then everyone voting again amongst the remaining candidates.
