WA Labor's decision to preference Nationals WA candidate Shane Love for Moore might just be enough to see him win the seat.

Dandaragan Shire president Mr Love is the Nationals member taking over from the retiring MP Grant Woodhams.

The seat is expected to be, like many other regional seats, a tight contest between Liberals and Nationals.

In 2008, the election was won by Mr Woodhams by a margin of just 3.1 per cent.

That remains unchanged heading into the 2013 election, as Moore remained unchanged during the redistribution.

With neither leading candidates being a sitting member the race for the seat could go either way.

Badgingarra agronomist and rural industry consultant Chris Wilkins should not be discounted, particularly as both candidates are untried in the Lower House.

Mr Wilkins was third on the Liberal Party's Upper House member for Agricultural region in 2008.

But again it seems the seat could be decided based on preferences.

But the battle for third in the seat may also be interesting as 2008 Labor candidate Peter Johnson faces a battle against former WA Legislative Council member for Agricultural region from 2001-2005 and Greens senator Dee Margetts.
