SPECULATION KATE WASHINGTON WILL CONTEST ALP LEADERSHIP

She survived a tough election battle, now there’s speculation Port Stephens MP Kate Washington could be stepping up for another political challenge – vying for state Labor leadership.

When NBN News spoke to Ms Washington today, she said she couldn’t comment on the matter, except to say the party has a process in place to select a new leader after the federal election.

Former Newcastle MP and current member for Strathfield Jodi McKay is considered another contender.
