Election 2020: Hamilton East and West swing left

From Morning Report, 6:47 am on 19 October 2020

Hamilton East and Hamilton West are two electorates that predicted the election result, without fail, in the years before MMP was introduced.

This weekend that historic trend returned with both electorates swinging to Labour. This is the first time in fifteen years that Labour has won both Hamilton seats together.

The Hamilton East MP, Jamie Strange, and the Hamilton West MP, Gaurav Sharma, speak to Susie Ferguson.
