Voters in Saint John—Rothesay reelected Liberal incumbent Wayne Long as their MP in the 2015 election.
Long has not been afraid to criticize the Liberal government, which still earned him a reelection in a riding that leans Conservative but has elected members of both parties in the past.
Long had to fend off a challenge from the man he defeated in 2015, Conservative Rodney Weston.
Liberal: Wayne Long (Incumbent)
Conservative: Rodney Weston

This riding, formerly just Saint John, includes the port city and its major suburbs, as well as Mispec.
This riding has elected both Liberals and PCs/Conservatives throughout its history. Its best-known MP was former Saint John mayor Elsie Wayne, who was one of just two PC MPs left standing after the 1993 election.
Two-term Conservative MP Rodney Weston was defeated in 2015 and is now looking to retake his old seat.
