Followed by an impassioned, rigorous and dedicated campaign, LibDems' Liz Leffman has leap-frogged over Labour and UKIP candidates into second place in the Witney by-election. This comes as a result of Liz's well-fought campaign against Tories in their 10th most secure seat. Together with her team and thousands of loyal LibDem Volunteers from across the country, Liz successfully managed a 19.3% swing from feeble Tory to pro-EU LibDem. This meant that 20 000 loyal Tory voters, had voted yellow as they felt their party had not done enough in the face of a post-Brexit era.
WITNEY BY-ELECTION: LDW’s chair, Liz Leffman, has been selected as the Lib Dem’s parliamentary candidate for the Witney by-election. We know LDW members will all be behind Liz at this exciting time, and we encourage everyone to get involved in campaigning and fundraising over the next few weeks.
