INDEPENDENT senator for SA Nick Xenophon was on the campaign trail in Naracoorte on Monday.
After visiting Mount Gambier and Millicent briefly in the morning he stopped in for lunch at a local bakery before he met with residents and business owners.
"First and foremost I am about SA," he said. "We are seen as the poorer cousin of the eastern states...I resent that. As an Independent my first priority has to be for the State."
He said his priorities in the lead up to the election were car manufacturing, water security, food labeling and farmers.
