Epsom's National supporters disappointed with election result

From Morning Report, 7:22 am on 26 September 2017

National supporters who backed ACT party leader David Seymour in the Epsom electorate say their vote wasn't wasted despite him being ruled out of government. It's well known centre-right voters in Epsom usually support Mr Seymour in a strategic move to help National in Parliament. But without the majority, National leader Bill English has made it clear he's only interested in a two-party coalition with New Zealand First.
