After a couple of weeks of stops and starts, we can expect the campaign to build real momentum from here on with bigger policy announcements and a more intensive pitch for voters’ attention.

And as veteran pollster John Scales pointed out in today’s Financial Review, it’s also that stage of the campaign where slips and stumbles can have big consequences particularly among those voters yet to make up their minds.

Australians can start to cast their ballot in early voting from today, just as the leaders face off for the first time in Perth tonight. They’ll meet again in Brisbane on Friday night.

So far, the campaign has been focused pretty much on taxing and spending. There have been some targeted ‘congestion-busting’ announcements as the campaigns have moved around the country, including what appears to be something of a trend for the Commonwealth spending on projects that have traditionally been the domain of state governments.

Maybe it’s timely to remind our political leaders that the best infrastructure investment decisions for the nation are those aligned with the Infrastructure Australia Priority List. That’s the best way to measure up the spending promises this election campaign.
