Bellarine
Electorate: Bellarine
Held by: Lisa Neville (Labor, 2002)
Swing +/- to MP 2014:  +7.3
Margin:  4.84

Key Comments: 

A veteran police officer will take on state Police Minister Lisa Neville in the seat of Bellarine. Brian McKiterick joined Victoria Police in 1979 and served as Torquay’s top cop for more than a decade. He is a stark contrast to the 2010 Liberal candidate for the seat, who was sentenced to jail for deception.
