New Brunswick election: Sussex-Fundy-St. Martins

PC candidate Tammy Scott-Wallace wins Sussex-Fundy-St. Martins in the 2020 election.

Riding background

Sussex-Fundy-St. Martins is a rural riding that extends along the Trans-Canada Highway from Burton in the west to Steeves Mountain in the east. The riding includes Sussex, Sussex Corner and St. Martins.

Since 2006, the riding has steadfastly elected a PC candidate, but flipped between Liberal and PC from 1987 to 2006.

The 2013 redistricting saw Kings East incorporate parts of the Hampton-Kings and Saint John-Fundy ridings. Kings East was also renamed Sussex-Fundy-St. Martins.

There will be no incumbent in this riding after Bruce Northrup said he would not reoffer as the New Brunswick Progressive Conservative candidate.
