In the third of our series detailing what happened to the original 100 members of the party's so-called priority list of candidates, here are the 27 - of whom 13 are men and 14 are women - who have been selected for seats which are Conservative targets. All swing calculations are based on the notional results of the 2005 election as if fought on the new boundaries (as calculated by Professors Rallings and Thrasher of the University of Plymouth).
(On Monday we listed the 27 who are no longer seeking a Westminster seat and yesterday we listed the 18 who have been selected to stand in Conservative held seats.)
Louise Bagshawe The best-selling author - not to mention regular contributor to the CentreRight blog - was selected in October 2006 for Corby in Northamptonshire. She needs a swing of 1.6% to unseat Labour's Phil Hope, who has a majority of 1,517.
Gavin Barwell Croydon councillor and political consultant Gavin was selected in Feburary 2008 for Croydon Central, in the wake of sitting MP Andrew Pelling's decision to stand down. After boundary changes, Labour start with a notional majority of 328, meaning that Gavin requires a swing of 0.4% to take the seat.
Angie Bray A member of the London Assembly until last year's election, Angie was selected in October 2006 for the newly-drawn Ealing Central & Acton constituency. Labour start with a notional majority of 839, meaning that Angie requires a swing of 1.1% to take the seat.
Steve Brine Formerly the party's area campaign director for Hampshire, Steve was selected in November 2006 for Winchester, where he has served a deputy chairman (political) of the local Conservative association. Sitting Lib Dem MP Mark Oaten is standing down, and Steve needs a swing of 6.4% to gain the redrawn seat.
David Bull The TV doctor was selected in December 2006 to fight Brighton Pavilion, where sitting Labour MP David Lepper is standing down. After relatively minor boundary changes, David needs a swing of 6.6% to gain the seat.
Mark Coote The former teacher and two-time candidate for Hastings & Rye was selected in November 2006 for Cheltenham, the town in which he grew up. Boundary changes mean that the sitting Lib Dem MP, Martin Horwood, would be ousted on a swing of 0.3%.
Jane Ellison Four-time parliamentary candidate (twice in Barnsley East, the 2000 Tottenham by-election and Pendle in 2005) Jane was selected in September 2006 for Battersea. After minor boundary changes, sitting Labour MP Martin Linton would be ousted on a swing of 0.4%.
Wilfred Emmanuel-Jones The self-styled "Black Farmer" was selected in June 2006 to stand in the newly-created Wiltshire constituency of Chippenham, which draws on three existing seats held by Conservative MPs. However, it is on paper a notionally Lib Dem held seat, meaning that Wilfred requires a swing of 2.4% to gain it.
Hannah Foster (née Parker) The former national chairman of Conservative Future, Hannah was selected in March 2007 for Exeter. After minor boundary changes, Hannah needs a swing of 8.1% to gain the seat from Labour MP Ben Bradshaw.
