Mirabella declined several requests for an interview. Mirabella surprised many when she chose to stand again after such a humiliating defeat and she is at least given credit for guts. Oh my god yes. This is wounding her. She is on a hiding to nowhere because her own party has walked away from her.
It appears to be true that her own side of politics has walked away from her, at least at this stage of the campaign. She laughs with the other candidates and talks to anyone who wants to chat after the debate finishes. Also on the stage is Corboy, and it is the National party that has turned out to be the Indi wildcard. The Nationals believe this is their heartland. Back then they gained a paltry They can stand a candidate now because Mirabella lost, at least in part because many prominent Nationals publicly or privately supported McGowan.

Listen to McGowan speak and you would think she was a steadfast supporter of marriage equality, and she is. Listed on her website is her speech as a co-sponsor of a bill introduced last year that would have legalised same-sex marriage, a bill that was never put to a parliamentary vote.
