Kenilworth and Southam has only ever had a Conservative MP - so other parties face an uphill battle. Last time round, Jeremy Wright polled more than the next three candidates combined.

However, that was when the Tories were rolling to an 80-seat majority under Boris Johnson - things are looking different under Rishi Sunak this time round. Labour and the Liberal Democrats are both eyeing seats like Kenilworth and Southam.

The constituency takes in Abbey, Cubbington, Lapworth, Leek Wootton, Park Hill, Radford Semele, St John's, and Stoneleigh, the District of Stratford-on-Avon wards of Burton Dassett, Fenny Compton, Harbury, Kineton, Long Itchington, Southam, Stockton and Napton, and Wellesbourne, and the Borough of Rugby wards of Dunchurch and Knightlow, Leam Valley, and Ryton-on-Dunsmore.

Electoral Calculus is predicting a Conservative win, which would be a relief for Sunak in the 2024 General Election.
