On May 18, Wagga residents will go to the polls for the third time in just nine months, this time to elect their representative in the federal parliament.
Coming hot on the heels of a state election in March, which itself came hot on the heels of a byelection in September, local voters can be forgiven for feeling like they have overdosed on democracy.
But, here we are again, forced to endure a relentless five-week campaign, which in truth has been going from the moment the so-called "compromise candidate" Scott Morrison emerged from the Liberal leadership turmoil to become Prime Minister last August.
Barring some unimaginable cataclysmic event, Michael McCormack will be very comfortably returned as the Member for Riverina, a seat he has held since 2010.
The disquiet and disillusionment once rusted-on Nationals voters are feeling with the party, as evident in its poor showing at NSW election, appears highly unlikely to filter through to the Riverina in any meaningful way.
It might well be that Mr McCormack's biggest challenge will come after the election in the form of retaining the Nationals leadership.
Regardless of whether the Coalition wins or loses the election, the sad nature of politics in Australia is that leaders are under constant scrutiny from fractious members of their own party room.
If the Coalition defies the opinion polls and wins the election, there will no doubt be forces within the Nationals agitating for change at the top of their party at some point during the term.
If the Coalition loses and is thrust into opposition, that pressure will come immediately.
We will watch with interest.
All the best for the week ahead, Ross.
