Labor’s Michael Pilbrow has gone down swinging in the state seat of Goulburn – conceding to sitting Liberal MP Wendy Tuckerman.
Despite a 2-point-6 per cent shift to Labor – Ms Tuckerman just held on – attracting 50-point-33 per cent of the vote and dashing Labor’s hopes of a majority in the New South Wales parliament.
Mr Pilbrow won six of the seven Goulburn booths, both Yass polling centres and significantly increased Labor’s vote in the Southern Highlands.
Ms Tuckerman – according to analysts – saved by Goulburn’s rural voters and late postal votes.
She’s posted on social media that she’s honoured and humbled to once again be elected as the local Member of Parliament.
