Campaign scorecard: Labor’s day of announceables and cash

In our daily election scorecard, we ask the experts who won the first day of campaigning, check in on the leaders’ activities, keep track of their spending (and saving) promises, and crown a tweet of the day.

Crikey asks the sharpest political commentators which leader got the best of the campaigning day, plus we track where the leaders are and what cash promises they’ve made …

    While FDOTM is clearly the outstanding cartoonist of his generation….
    Tony Abbott’s appearance at the sausage factory yesterday produced this stunning “Rembrandt” from David Rowe in the Fin. http://is.gd/n1lcfa

    Tim Wilson? Really?

    Yes, the IPA’s view was somewhat predictable. I’m looking forward to Mr Wilson’s analysis on the day after Mr Abbott runs over a dog while driving a tractor (whilst wearing a high-viz vest, of course). “Abbott raised awareness of safety issues in agricultural industries, highlighted excessive government red-tape under which our primary producers suffer, and announced measures reduced spending on veterinary health. Meanwhile, Rudd’s message failed to cut through, largely because we had our fingers in our ears and kept shouting ‘not listening, not listening’. A clear win to Abbott.”
