Video: Keith Buchanan wins the DUP ‘battle’ for final Mid Ulster seat

Pomeroy man Keith Buchanan picked up the final seat in the Mid Ulster constituency in the tenth count.

It was a close run affair with party colleague Ian McCrea, the sitting MLA, with only a few votes between them throughout the day.

“They said it couldn’t be done but we did it,” said a jubilant Mr Buchanan, after the count was announced in Ballymena tonight.
