Federal election 2019: Photos, information and results from the seat of Bowman


Labor candidate Tom Baster said Mr Laming was a tough campaigner.

Policy issues like franking credits and Mr Laming's long tenure in the seat had not helped him peg back M Laming's strong lead.

"He's got good name recognition," Mr Baster said.

Mr Baster said the proposed Toondah Harbour development was not a factor in the election.

Thanking supporters, he predicted that Mr Laming's election promise of $30 million for the Redland Hospital would not be honoured.
