Gudrid Hutchings successful Liberal candidate in Long Range Mountains
The Liberal Party of Newfoundland and Labrador has yet to confirm the official vote count, but candidate Gudrid Hutchings — and her competitor — tweeted Monday morning that Hutchings will be the Liberal candidate for Long Range Mountains.
Hutchings, of Little Rapids, defeated Mark Watton in a nomination vote that took place over the weekend.
According to her campaign website, Hutchings has worked in the outfitting industry for almost two decades.
The federal riding is currently held by Liberal MP Gerry Byrne.
Byrne is leaving his seat to seek the provincial Liberal nomination in the district of Humber West in time for the next provincial general election.
