The Poll Bludger has posted a useful wrap of some recent developments which is worth a read.
Among the links cited, there’s one to the selection of Rebecca Docherty as the LNP candidate for Kevin Rudd’s seat of Griffith:
The Liberal National Party has come up with an odd arrangement whereby its newly preselected candidate for Kevin Rudd’s seat of Griffith, Rebecca Docherty – herself a substitute for dumped former Liberal Democratic Party figure John Humphreys – will make way for an unspecified “high-profile” candidate should Rudd have a late change of heart about remaining in politics.
Kevin Rudd will be campaigning in his seat today, though not taking questions from the media pack. There’s more on Docherty here.
There are persistent rumours around town that former Howard minister, Mal Brough, is the putative “celebrity candidate”. Griffith is Labor’s safest seat in Queensland, but a lot of that is Kevin Rudd’s personal vote.
