Chris Davies MP said:
I am delighted to have been given the opportunity to regain the support of my constituents in an up-coming by-election.
I would like to thank members of my local association for supporting me, and putting their faith in me once again.
I look forward to campaigning over the next few weeks and winning back this seat, so that I can continue to work hard for the people of Brecon and Radnorshire.
A lot has been achieved over the past four years, but there is so much more to do, and I am the right person to do it.
I am the local candidate in this up-coming election, I have worked in this area for many years, my family live within this constituency, my children attend the local schools. Unlike my opposition, I have not been parachuted in from London with the sole aim of using the electorate of Brecon and Radnorshire to fulfill my own political ambitions.
I have fought hard over the past four years to push local issues to the top of the agenda in Westminster. Ensuring the concerns and dreams of the people of rural Mid Wales are understood by those running the country.
I have been overwhelmed by the support I have received from people across our beautiful constituency in recent weeks and I will be campaigning positively about what the I and the Conservative party can offer the people Brecon and Radnorshire.
