- Does the Party have any real influence over who the delegates select?
- What will it cost me to run for parliament?
- Does caucus have any influence over selection?
- What if I am threatened that association with certain people will be bad for my career?
- Does National look after losing candidates?
- Will National push me up the list if I keep taking one for the team in a red seat?
