GUESS WHO'S BACK (BACK AGAIN)

Former New South Wales premier and unsuccessful Bennelong byelection candidate Kristina Keneally has publicly expressed interest in taking up the federal Labor Senate spot left vacant by Sam Dastyari.

In what one Labor insider has described as a "shitfight," the The Sydney Morning Herald reports that Keneally put her hand up for the Labor Right spot after her two main rivals, Transport Workers' Union boss Tony Sheldon and United Voice union's Tara Moriarty, have seemingly dropped away.
