The Conservative Party in Bassetlaw launched its general election campaign on Saturday 9th December following the selection of Councillor Brendan Clarke-Smith as its parliamentary candidate.
Local activists received a warm welcome from voters in Gateford and Harworth on the first day of campaigning. The Home Secretary Priti Patel came to talk to residents about the Conservatives manifesto for law and order. More police on the streets of Bassetlaw and tougher sentences for those who break the law. She also said the Conservatives will introduce an immigration that works for Britain.
"We have had a fantastic launch to the campaign with a lot of positive feedback" said Brendan.
The Chairman of Bassetlaw Conservative Association and parliamentary election agent Drew Smith said "residents of Bassetlaw seem to like Brendan Clarke-Smith. He is down to earth, grounded and a thoroughly nice man. He will give Bassetlaw the effective voice it needs in Westminster."
