From Morning Report, 6:38 am on 10 August 2020

Jacinda Ardern says it's impossible not to define the upcoming election as the "Covid election" with all parties focused on the best way to get New Zealand through - jobs, the economy and welfare support.

Labour launched its bid for re-election at the weekend with a $300 million jobs plan.

Hundreds of party faithful packed into the Auckland Town Hall to hear it leader's pitch to voters.

Political reporter Yvette McCullough was there and filed this report.
