Lawyer Morry Bailes is going all out to win the Senate seat vacated by departing ex-Lib Cory Bernardi.

Bailes has compiled a glossy 16-page brochure for pre-selectors who will decide today if he or Andrew McLachlan is sent to Canberra.

Bailes lists some impressive backers. Although that does include finance minister Mathias Cormann, who supported Peter Dutton for PM, so was on the losing side. State parliament will hold a joint sitting on Thursday to confirm SA’s new senator.
