Sophie Mirabella (@MirabellaSophie) won Liberal party preselection today at Benalla, setting up a rematch in what will likely be the most watched seat at the next federal election, Indi.

Earlier in June, Cathy McGowan MP (@IndigoCathy) announced she will contest the next election.

Mirabella beat Melbourne-based anaesthetist, Andrew Walpole and Wodonga businessman, Kevin Ekendahl to run in Indi at the next federal election.

Labor have pre-selected 21 year old Wodonga Councillor, Eric Kerr (@EricKerrforIndi and @eric_kerr2).

The Nationals have announced they’ll run a candidate in the seat, but have not been through the preselection process. Marty Corboy (@marty_corboy) is widely tipped to run for the Nationals. Corboy told No Fibs:

A convincing win and clearly the candidate the Liberal party want to represent them at the forthcoming election. I wish her well.
