In 2007, Arnott beat Liberal Marg Bentley by 8,221 votes in the 2007 election. In 2003, Arnott took 49 per cent of the vote in Waterloo-Wellington to beat Liberal Deborah Whale.

Arnott won the old Wellington riding in 1990 and 1995, and was re-elected in Waterloo-Wellington after the 1999 redistribution.

The Halton riding was created in 1999 from all of the old Halton North riding and 33 per cent of the old Halton Centre riding.

After the 1999 redistribution, Chudleigh crushed Liberal Mohan Anand by 20,738 votes. He held onto the seat in 2003, but by a much lower margin; Liberal Barbara Sullivan trailed him by 5,593 votes. In 2007, Chudleigh squeaked out a 176-vote win over Liberal Gary Zemlak.
