Fight to the Finish - LibDems

Mark Jewell will work with Nick Clegg for Change that works for Preston.

Liberal Democrats in Preston say the battle for who wins on 6th May will go right to the wire.

Mark Jewell, Liberal Democrat candidate for the constituency, the main challenger to Labour, says every vote for the Liberal Democrats will count.

In a special message to supporters of the Conservatives in Preston, Mark Jewell said, "Everyone knows that only the Liberal Democrats can beat Labour here.

"Preston needs change and if elected as your new MP, I will work with Nick Clegg and the Liberal Democrats to ensure that change comes about.

"But that change can only be won if the Conservative, who do not have any County Councillors representing any part of the Preston Constituency, lend me their vote this time to help defeat the Labour Party here.

"Many supporters of the Conservative Party have told me they are backing us this time as they know their candidate stands virtually no chance of winning here.

"I urge those still thinking of voting for the Conservative Party in Preston to think seriously of using their vote for change instead. Do you really want to wake up on Friday 7th May to discover Labour held on here by a few votes?

"Please use your vote wisely for change. Please use it to back the Liberal Democrat call for reform and fairness."
