Jo has been named as one of the top 20 MPs under 40 with the brightest prospects in Parliament.
In its 19th September issue, the New Statesman tips Jo as an energetic campaigner, with a ‘dedication to issues outside the mainstream’. The list of 20 MPs also includes Cumbernauld, Kilsyth and Kirktintilloch East MP Gregg McClymont, and Jo’s husband, fellow Lib Dem Duncan Hames.
Samira Shackles, the feature’s writer, commented:
“In a political career already a term longer than those of many others on this list, Swinson has yet to put a foot wrong.”
