A well-known Adelaide lawyer is favourite to replace Cory Bernardi as South Australia’s next Liberal senator, reports FIVEaa Breakfast’s David Penberthy.

Penbo said during Monday’s Breaking @ 8 segment:

“The Liberals are now holding a full pre-selection for this position…

“All the people I’ve spoken to including moderates are of the view that the person numerically most likely to do that is Morry Bailes.

“He is a very well established lawyer here in Adelaide. He is the managing partner of Tindall Gask Bentley and he’s often been on Leon’s program over the years. He’s a former head of the Law Society. He wrote a well regarded column for The Advertiser in that role and it’s our understanding that he is dead keen on putting his legal career behind him to become a parliamentarian…

“It sounds like Morry Bailes is going to be the next Liberal senator for South Australia.”
