Rebekha Sharkie (@MakeMayoMatter) of Centre Alliance (then Nick Xenophon Team) won the seat of Mayo in 2016 when she defeated her former boss, Jamie Briggs.
Sharkie resigned from Parliament due to eligibility issues after a High Court ruling went against Labor's Katy Gallagher.
At the 2018 by-election that followed, Sharkie defeated a member of Australia's most (in)famous political dynasties, Georgina Downer.
Downer is again contesting the seat and has already made headlines after handing the recipients of a government grant a huge cheque with her name on it, at a ceremony the current Member was excluded from.

Don Chipp (from Hansard) This quote is […]

The @NoFibs #IndependentsDay Twitter mission at #ausvotes: @margokingston1 comments

The way I see it, every safe Coalition seat must be in play in the sense that quality indies ask tough questions incumbents are forced to answer. That requires courageous indies & committed, creative citizens because a weakened local media can’t do it. Ready to play? #ausvotes — Margo Kingston (@margokingston1) February 22, 2019 Hi. […]
