Federal Parliament has finished for the year but television advertising for the 2013 election has begun already.
This television advertisement is from the Liberal candidate for Bendigo, Greg Bickley. It is titled “Make things better.” You can watch an earlier advertisement on his YouTube page.
Bendigo is held for the ALP by Steve Gibbons on a two-party-preferred margin of 9.53%. Gibbons secured a 3.4% swing towards him in 2010 but he is not contesting the 2013 election. The new ALP candidate is Lisa Chesters.
