In the new Victorian seat of Euroa the gloves are off between conservative parties, with the Liberals and Nationals fighting hard for the seat. And with the amount of money spent on campaigning, the National Party's candidate Stephanie Ryan, 28, a former rural journalist and spinner for ousted premier Ted Baillieu, is feeling the pressure to perform.

With Nationals MP  Bill Sykes retiring, the deal between the Liberals and the Nationals not to contest seats held by sitting members is off, so the Nats are depending on Ryan.
