Thanet South Selects Cameron 'A' List Candidate

Thanet South Conservatives have selected Laura Sandys, one of David Cameron’s 'A list' candidates, as the constituency’s parliamentary hopeful to fight the next election.

Her selection makes her the first candidate in Kent to be adopted from Mr Cameron's elite list of candidates for one of the county's seven Conservative target seats.

Ms Sandys, 43, has been a political consultant for 15 years and was recently on the shortlist to succeed Michael Howard as the candidate for Folkestone and Hythe."

Her selection means that Mark MacGregor, who contested the seat in 2001 and 2005, will not have a third run at becoming an MP.
