'Thirty-four kilometres away, Davidson is in the thick of her own fight to seize Lane Cove from incumbent NSW Planning Minister Anthony Roberts. The senior right-wing Liberal has held the seat for two decades with a current margin of 14 per cent. Davidson says she hears deafening opposition to Roberts, his voting record (he voted against decriminalising abortion and legalising voluntary assisted dying) and aggressive local development under his watch. But some election watchers say the planning minister's aggressive approach to increase housing supply amid the affordability crisis could, in fact, buttress him.'
