It's nearly that time again - Oor Fergus launches re-election campaign website

Holyrood elections only three months away and the incumbent Fergus Ewing has a campaign website up and running. Realistically it will be very hard to see anyone serious challenger from the other parties threatening his seat so will it all simply be about the size of his majority? 

 Results in this constituency in 2016 were:

"The turnout for the Inverness and Nairn constituency was 57.8%. Votes given were as follows:

  • Carolyn Ann Caddick - Scottish Liberal Democrats (5,445)
  • Fergus Ewing - Scottish National Party (SNP) (18,505)
  • Edward Mountain - Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party (7,648)
  • David Stewart - Scottish Labour Party (6,719)" 
  • More on this Highland Council page. 

Perhaps more interesting for election geeks will be what happens on the list with the second vote if the former Scottish Green Party MSP Andy Wightman stands as an independent.
