A-lister Karen Bradley has been selected for Staffordshire Moorlands. Anthony Wells estimates that this seat now has a notional Conservative majority of 1,035.
Karen's selection will be a relief for CCHQ after a string of men had been selected in other seats. Karen worked in the CCHQ Policy Unit before the last election and, as a tax specialist, has advised George Osborne and Theresa Villiers. She wrote this piece for ConservativeHome - on Winning in the land of the Liberal Democrats - before May's local elections.
