Georgina Downer; The Name Doesn't Give Me The Right To Mayo

Georgina Downer brings a long line of political pedigree to her candidacy for the Mayo by-election with generations of her family choosing to represent South Australia including her father who himself held the seat of Mayo.

So what does Georgina Downer say to those who say having the name doesn't give her the right to automatically walk back into the seat.

"No, it doesn't give me the right at all, I totally agree with that."

"I'm more than just Dad's daughter, I'm a person in my own right and I have my own set of accomplishments and I come with my own family, my husband and my two kids and it's really up to the people of Mayo to decide who they think will best represent them."
