Nick Clegg makes first post TV debate appearance in Warrington

Warrington Guardian: Nick Clegg speaks to Liberal Democrat supporters and the media Nick Clegg speaks to Liberal Democrat supporters and the media

NICK Clegg made his first public appearance following the TV Leaders debate at the Halliwell Jones Stadium.

The national media and party supporters crowded around the Liberal Democrat battle bus painted in yellow livery as it pulled into the stadium car park this morning for the party's leader's visit.

It is the second time in just over two weeks that Nick Clegg has made an appearance in the borough to back Warrington South Lib Dem candidate Jo Crotty.

Mr Clegg spoke to party activists telling them: "Warrington is like many parts in the country, particularly the north that have been let down by Labour.

"I say to the people of Warrington, where the Lib Dems are the only real challenge to Labour,do not let Labour let you down for the fourth time."

Warrington Sth is a long way down the Tory target list and is not natural territory for them.  If Dr Crotty is ever to secure second place there, and thus a chance of winning it, it is likely to be by displacing the Tories.  So, Dr Crotty should be gunning for Tory wards and voters.  In Chester the reverse is true, so the Lib Dems should be after Labour votes there.
