Isle of Wight MP, Andrew Turner, has revealed who he’ll be supporting in the current Conservative leadership race.
The ballot started yesterday (Tuesday) and will continue until only two candidates remain. The vote will then go out to party members across the country.
Andrew told OnTheWight,
“I supported Andrea Leadsom in the first ballot yesterday and am likely to do so in the next round as I believe she would make the best Prime Minister.
“However, the ballot of MPs is only one part of the process, the final decision will be made by members of the Conservative Party nationally, and I am content with that.”
Scores from first ballot
Theresa May, the current Home Secretary, gained the vote of 165 MPs.
Energy Minister, Andrea Leadsom made second place with 66 MPs whilst Michael Gove, the Justice Secretary ended up in third place, with support of just 48 MPs.
Stephen Crabb stepped out of the race after falling into fourth place and Liam Fox was eliminated after falling into fifth place.
