Old grudges and factional maneuvering are complicating the NSW Labor leadership race between Chris Minns and Jodi McKay.
Mike Baird has held onto power, but the real winners might actually be the Greens.
Luke Foley is hoping the electorate will have forgiven Labor for previous sins during the past three years But his "new approach" still has a lot of the old approach in it.
Jodi McKay is taking on sitting Liberal Charles Casuscelli in Strathfield, and the result could be predictive of the state election as a whole.
Even after ICAC revelations tarnish Liberals, NSW Labor still struggles to win public support in weekend byelection.
Looming byelections in the NSW seats of Newcastle and Charlestown will be an all-in (except for the Libs, of course) multi-party splash.
