Brexit Party withdraws Grantham area candidates from General Election
The Brexit Party has withdrawn its candidates from seats where Conservative MPs were elected at the last General Election in 2017.
Party leader Nigel Farage announced the move earlier today (Monday) to help prevent the pro-Brexit vote splitting and allowing the anti-Brexit Liberal Democrats or the Labour Party to make gains.
The Brexit Party will still stand candidates against Labour MPs.
It means that Grantham businesswoman Jessica Swift will not be standing in Grantham and Stamford, nor will RAF veteran Jim Bennett be standing in Rutland and Melton.
