Julie Bishop is the leading candidate to replace Sir Peter Cosgrove as Governor General according to the betting and the punters agree.
Bishop opened as the $3.00 favourite to take up the role but has since wound in her odds to $2.25 following strong punter support.
Julie Bishop certainly has the experience to excel in the role which is ratified by the interest we’ve seen from our punters but it really depends on whether she wants it or not.
Has Julie Bishop been promised she can quit early and take up a GG job if they can scrape a win? Obviously the GG residence would need to be moved to the West Coast Eagles training camp.

Alexander Downer ($3.30), Angus Houston ($4.50) and David Hurley ($5.00) are all still in the running for the position to replace Cosgrove when his term ends.
