Battle brewing over Northland electorate seat

From Morning Report, 7:45 am on 4 September 2020

There's a battle brewing in the seat of Northland, with the future of one party potentially riding on the result.

The New Zealand First MP Shane Jones is in a fight for his political life, with the Labour Party unwilling to lend a hand.

He's up against Labour's Willow Jean Prime, and the incumbent MP Matt King - both of whom are ahead of Jones in recent polling.

Before Auckland re-entered lockdown RNZ political reporter Jo Moir travelled north to meet with the contenders.

Here's her report.
