Congratulations to Mike Thornton, MP for Eastleigh

March 5, 2013 11:39 PM

This campaign has been a fantastic sign of our strength and a huge testament to the hundreds of volunteers who gave their time and effort for us throughout the campaign. There have been enormous levels of enthusiasm shown by our activists throughout the campaign. We had hundreds of members and supporters from across South Central Region go to Eastleigh to help as well as volunteers from across the country. Our Liberal Youth members played a huge part in the campaign and spent may days helping Mike to secure an important victory.

Our focus throughout the campaign was to knock on as many doors and speak to as many people as possible to tell them about our excellent local candidate, Mike Thornton, and the Liberal Democrats' strong local and national record delivering for people in Eastleigh.

We fought this campaign on the issues that matter to local people: jobs; growth; protecting green spaces; cutting taxes; and more money for pensioners and schools.

Mike Thornton writes: "A big thank you to all the Lib Dem voters, supporters and campaigners who helped the Lib Dems win."
