Candidates lining up to take Daryl Maguire's place

The state opposition has seized the opportunity, while the Wagga electorate is in the political spotlight, to announce its candidate for the seat at the next election.

Current City Councillor and psychologist Dan Hayes will run for the seat in March next year, or sooner, in the event of a by-election.

Acting Opposition Leader Michael Daley was in town for the announcement, and reiterated his calls for Daryl Maguire to stand down in the wake of the property deal scandal.

The Shooters Fishers and Farmers are also circling, confirming they'll run a candidate for the seat, but they're yet to say who it will be.
