'We came very close': James Hansen reflects on election run
OUR state members have been returned, but more results are rolling in as the State Election count continues.
Results from the Electoral Commission of Queensland have Maryborough MP Bruce Saunders comfortably leading his seat on 47.10 per cent, more than 17 per cent ahead of One Nation candidate James Hansen (as of the latest count about 3pm Monday).
The LNP's Richard Kingston is on 4657 (17.22 per cent), Greens candidate Craig Armstrong is on 889 (3.29 per cent) and Independent Roger Currie has attracted 2.77 per cent of the vote with 750 votes.
Mr Hansen said it was likely he would fall short when the seat was formally called.
"We came very close in a lot of booths, it shows there's a lot of support for us," Mr Hansen said.
