The race for Cowper continues with a fourth candidate announced to run for pre-selection for The Nationals.
Judy Plunkett, a pharmacist from the Mid North Coast will join solicitor Patrick Conaghan, business owner and electrician Jamie Harrison and Port Macquarie newsagent Chris Genders as the next possible candidate representing the Nationals in the upcoming election in place of outgoing member Luke Hartsuyker.
Mr Hartsuyker made the announcement on Triple M on Friday, saying that "Judy Plunkett a well known pharmacist from Port Macquarie has joined the race".
"We have four very strong candidates and the Nationals Party have a system of democratic pre-selection, so often the pre-selection battles are won on the day", Mr Hartsuyker said.
Grassroots members will vote on 3 November 2018.
