The NSW Nationals have announced the candidates who will be running for pre selection in the federal division of Cowper.
Solicitor Patrick Conaghan, business owner and electrician Jamie Harrison and Port Macquarie newsagent Chris Genders have put forward their names as the next possible candidate representing the Nationals in the upcoming election in place of outgoing member Luke Hartsuyker.
Grassroots members will vote, with the pre selection meeting scheduled to take place on 3 November 2018.
A Nationals spokesperson said "The NSW Nationals' preselection process is one of the finest examples of democracy in action, as party members get to decide who will represent them in the Federal Parliament".
"Our Party undertakes strict vetting procedures to ensure that our candidates are suitable to be elected as Members of the Federal Parliament".
