THE Liberal Party have confirmed their candidate for Isaacs in the upcoming federal election.
Jeremy Hearn was preselected last week to stand as the candidate. He was named as a nominee in the Higgins preselection process as well, but ultimately was not chosen to replace outgoing Liberal MP Kelly O’Dwyer.
The Age last month reported that the fee for applying for preselection had been cut to $250 in a number of Victorian seats, including Isaacs.
The seat is currently held by Shadow Attorney General Mark Dreyfus, who has been the local member since 2007.
Mr Dreyfus currently holds the seat with a 52.3 per cent majority. The state election results in Mordialloc and Carrum saw large swings towards Labor.
