Labor candidate Trevor Ross has launched his campaign as he tries to wrestle Lindsay back for the party after just one term with the Coalition.
Lindsay fell to Labor in the wake of the resignation of Emma Husar in the lead-up to the 2016 election. The Liberals’ Melissa McIntosh holds the seat by five per cent.
Mr Ross had some high profile support at his launch at the Penrith Bowling Club, including Londonderry MP Prue Car and Shadow Energy Minister Chris Bowen.
A number of Penrith City Councillors including former Mayors Karen McKeown and John Thain were also in attendance.
Prime Minister Scott Morrison is yet to call the election, with May 21 now looking certain to be polling day.
