Final debate looms as campaign leaders navigate controversy

10 days to go! Who’s excited!? Just us then…

Both leaders are making there way across the country visiting seats, but not making major announcements. More than 1.2 million people have voted already, breaking pre-poll records

Fresh from launching the Labor campaign on Sunday, Bill Shorten spent the day in Nowra announcing an additional $250 million to clear hospital waiting lists in the electorate of Gilmore. Scott Morrison will launch his campaign on Sunday

The economy and small business has been the focus of Scott Morrison today, visiting the must win electorate of Reid. He also travelled to the seat of Gilmore yesterday, announcing a $128 million to upgrade for Shellharbour Hospital.

The last few days have also been bogged down in a few controversies: The best laid plans of a young woman failed on Tuesday during an attempted egging of Scott Morrison. The PM was hit on the scone at a CWA event, the egg didn’t crack.

A major national Newspaper published a story regarding Bill Shortens late mother, arguing that he is omitting details about her career to garner sympathy from voters. The paper has been roundly condemned for its “journalism”, with other newspapers in the business refusing to print the story.

Both leaders have returned to Canberra for the third and final leader’s debate tonight at 7:30pm at the National Press Club. If you haven’t watched a debate as yet, this will be the best one to watch.
