She fended off competition from Lisa Duffy, a councillor in Cambridgeshire, Bill Etheridge, West Midlands MEP and councillor in Dudley, Elizabeth Jones, Deputy-Chair of UKIP Lambeth and member of the National Executive Committee, and Phillip Broughton, Parliamentary Candidate for the target seat of Hartlepool. The result was announced today at UKIP’s Autumn Conference in Bournemouth.

She listed her priorities as cutting migration, promoting enterprise, and turning UKIP into a “winning machine”.
