Prime Minister Scott Morrison is visiting the Shoalhaven today to sure up support for Liberal Candidate Warren Mundine and talk up their economic policies.

The battle for Gilmore will be tightly contested between Mr Mundine, Labor Candidate Fiona Phillips, Independent Grant Schultz and Nationals Candidate Katrina Hodgkinson.

Mr Morrison says the Coalition also has also been quick to take action to help drought-stricken farmers, highlighting a Million dollar funding package for Council's around Australia.

"To ensure that people can still be getting work, that the towns still have money...because when you get the downturn from the drought you need to keep the towns alive otherwise the local businesses, the local grocery shops and the jobs that they provide, that goes under threat as well," Mr Morrison said.
