‘I’m encouraged by the level of support’: John Pesutto runs for Vic Liberal leader

Incoming Hawthorn MP John Pesutto said he was “emboldened” by the level of support he has received as he is determined to fight for Victoria’s Liberal leadership.

“Now I’m talking to everyone I can, those who are clearly elected and those who are most likely to be elected,” he said.

“And talk to them about what I hope to achieve if I am chosen as their leader.”
