Prime Minister Scott Morrison was right to begin his election campaign in New South Wales because it is where the “fertile ground is,” according to former Victorian Liberal Party President Michael Kroger.

It comes after the Prime Minister’s visit the Hunter region on Monday where he announced the government would contribute $1.5 million to the study of a potential hydrogen hub at the Port of Newcastle.

“They have to win seats in NSW … there’s seven seats under 5 per cent outside the Sydney metropolitan area,” Mr Kroger told Sky News host Andrew Bolt.

“I don’t think they can win any more in Queensland or Western Australia, they’re going to shed seats in those states.

“They’ve got to pick up a few in NSW so I think Scott was right to start there because that’s where the fertile ground is.

“If they win three or four in NSW, they’ve got a good chance of holding government.”
