ACT Party promises biggest campaign in 15 years

From Morning Report, 7:42 am on 13 July 2020

The ACT Party is promising its biggest and most expensive campaign in 15 years as it fights for more seats in parliament.

Party leader David Seymour has been the party's sole MP since 2014 - winning the Epsom electorate, but struggling to garner more than one percent of the party vote.

With recent polls putting ACT's support at about the 3 percent, there's a high chance Seymour could have company when he returns to the debating chamber after September's election.

RNZ reporter Sarah Robson was at ACT's campaign launch in Auckland yesterday where the leader was greeted with a standing ovation.
