Jo Churchill

Pharmacy Minister Jo Churchill has been re-elected as the MP for Bury St Edmunds with a huge majority.

She received 37,770 votes against her nearest rival and Labour candidate Cliff Waterman who got 12,782.

Her majority of 24,988 is thought to be the largest ever in the constituency.

In 2017, she won her seat by what now looks like a paltry lead of just over 6,500 votes.

In her “short and sweet” victory speech, Churchill thanked “everybody who has put their faith” in her to send her “back to Westminster next week” where she would “carry on the hard work.”

Churchill, first elected as a Conservative Party MP in 2015 as the first female representative for Bury St Edmunds, was appointed minister in charge of the pharmacy portfolio in August.
