The race is on in the Adelaide Hills seat of Mayo, with MP Rebekha Sharkie having resigned in May – and the by election set for 28 July. Challenging Sharkie is Georgina Downer, of South Australia’s famed Downer clan.

Will she become the third generation of Downers to represent the Hills or will Sharkie claw back her electorate without Nick Xenophon’s helping hand? What has Sharkie done as an MP, and what’s Downer been doing in Melbourne?

Brayden Johns explores the candidates track records and their prospects.
