Jessica Whelan says she is ‘not an extremist’, she just has ‘very strong views.’

The Liberal turned independent candidate for Lyons joins Brian Carlton this morning to clear up the scandal of last week, when she had to resign as a Liberal candidate due to controversial social media comments.

This morning Jessica tells Brian that she believes she can still win the seat of Lyons, and 'make things better for regional Tasmania.'

Tasmania Talks listeners also call in after the interview to give their thoughts on Ms Whelan and her social media comments.
