Lead Welsh Liberal Democrat European Candidate Sam Bennett has urged Green, Change UK, remain Labour and remain Conservative voters to lend the Welsh Liberal Democrats their vote tomorrow to send a message to Labour.
Monday’s YouGov poll for ITV Wales and Cardiff University showed that the Brexit Party are on course to win the 1st and 3rd seats, with Plaid Cymru set to win the 2nd and Labour the 4th and final seat.
The Welsh Liberal Democrats are just 5% behind Labour, meaning a 6% increase in our share of the vote or just 2.6% switching to us from Labour would be enough to give us the 4th seat.
Labour have won 38 of the 39 Wales-wide elections since December 1918. Labour finishing 4th and failing to win an MEP in Wales would be unprecedented and send them the strongest possible message.
Lead Welsh Liberal Democrat European Candidate Sam Bennett said:
Latest polling shows that we can elect Wales’ first ever Welsh Liberal Democrat MEP if only Green, Change UK, remain Labour and remain Conservative voters lend us their votes tomorrow.
Make no mistake, under Jeremy Corbyn Labour have become a Brexit party. Any votes for Labour in these European elections will be construed as a vote for Brexit.
Remain voters need to lend us their votes tomorrow so we can beat Labour and secure Wales’ 4th MEP. This will send Labour the strongest possible message that they must stop enabling Brexit and must immediately and wholeheartedly support a People’s Vote.
We are Wales’ remain party. We were the first party to fight for Brexit to be put back to the people and have led the campaign for a People’s Vote. If you want to secure another remain MEP for Wales and help stop Brexit, vote Welsh Liberal Democrat.
