Heappey backs Truss
Another Somerset MP has declared their hand in the Conservative leadership election.
Yesterday James Heappey came out for the Liz Truss campaign.
Truss has most of her support from the extreme right of the Conservative Party. Which makes Heappey, the MP for Wells, a surprising fellow traveller.
That now only leaves Ian Liddell Grainger to declare his hand. The MP for Bridgwater and West Somerset remains tight lipped about who he will be voting for.
David Warburton, MP for Somerset and Frome is still suspended from the Party and cannot vote.
