Baird dogged by fears greyhound ban will cost Nationals seat

SPECULATION is mounting that the up-coming Orange by-election will see NSW Premier Mike Baird delaying the greyhound racing ban for three years.

Nine News reports Mr Baird may hold off on implementing the ban until 2020 as he tries to woo voters back into the National fold before the by-election.

Polling shows a 15% swing away from the Nationals in Orange.

"I'm ruling out the possibility that I'm going to make any changes other than what I think is the right one," Mr Baird said of the ban late yesterday.

"There's no doubt that Orange will be a challenge, that's very clear." - ARM NEWSDESK
