Lib Dem Leadership: Ed Davey and Layla Moran head two-horse race
There are now just two main contenders in the race to become the new leader of the Liberal Democrats.
They’re vying to replace Jo Swinson, who resigned as leader of the party after losing her seat of East Dunbartonshire at the 2019 General Election.
Outside of the front two in the betting, newly elected Daisy Cooper is considered a 10/1 shot, with Wera Hobhouse and Christine Jardine rank outsiders at 20/1 and 25/1 respectively.
Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “Sir Ed Davey may have headed the betting for some time but punters are seemingly convinced Layla Moran will be replacing Jo Swinson after throwing her hat into the ring this weekend.”
He added: “The pair are now locked at the head of the betting at 11/10 apiece.”
