Maria Caulfield - recently in the final six for Gosport - has now been selected to fight Caerphilly at the general election.
Maria has been a councillor in Brighton and Hove since 2007, when she gained a seat from Labour, overturning a 1,500 majority in the process. She is now Cabinet member for housing in Brighton and Hove and cites a particular interest in environmental issues. She also works part-time as a cancer research nurse at the Royal Marsden Hospital.
She said on her selection:
"I feel very proud to have been chosen as the Conservative Parliamentary candidate for for the wonderful constituency of Caerphilly. I have been made to feel so welcome by the association and I have pledged to them that I will do my very best to represent them."
Her Facebook campaign page is already up and running.
The seat has been in Labour hands since 1918 and the current MP, Wayne David, will defend a notional majority of 13,517 over Plaid Cyrmru, with the Conservatives starting in third place with 14.7% of the vote.
