As the leadership and deputy leadership campaign hots up with Rebecca Long-Bailey launching her campaign today, it’s interesting to see who Welsh Labour MPs nominated.
It will be even more interesting to compare CLP nominations with those of their Labour MPs
|Leadership candidate||Number of nominations from Welsh Labour MPs||Names|
|Nandy||3||Brennan, Ruth Jones and Kinnock|
|Phillips||2||Antoniazzi and Bryant|
|Starmer||13||David, Davies, Doughty, Elmore, Evans, Harris, McMorrin, Moirden, Rees, Smith, Stevens, Tami, Thomas-Symonds|
|Thornberry||3||Davies-Jones, Griffith, Gerald Jones|
One nomination for Long-Bailey (Winter), two nominations for Jess Phillips (Antoniazzi and Bryant), three for Nandy (Brennan, Ruth Jones and Kinnock), three for Thornberry (Davies-Jones, Griffith, Gerald Jones), 13 for Starmer (David, Davies, Doughty, Elmore, Evans, Harris, McMorrin, Morden, Rees, Smith, Stevens, Tami, Thomas-Symonds).
Deputy Leader Nominations
|Deputy Leadership candidate||Number of nominations from Welsh Labour MPs||Names|
|Allin Khan||5||Brennan, Davies, Kinnock, McMorrin, Smith|
|Burgon||1||Winter (loaned – Rayner)|
|Murray||7||Anoniazzi, Bryant, David, Davies-Jones, Elmore, Evans, Griffith|
|Rayner||8||Doughty, Gerald Jones, Ruth Jones, Morden, Rees, Stevens, Tami, Thomas-Symonds|
|21 (Harris appears not to have nominated anyone)|
No nominations at all for Butler, one nomination for Burgon (Winter, although she made it clear that this was a loan in order to ensure he was on the ballot and that she would actually vote for Rayner), Five for Allin Khan (Brennan, Davies, Kinnock, McMorrin, Smith), seven for Murray (Anoniazzi, Bryant, David, Davies-Jones, Elmore, Evans, Griffith) and eight for Rayner (Doughty, Gerald Jones, Ruth Jones, Morden, Rees, Stevens, Tami, Thomas-Symonds).
