    A former National leader says deals should be done -- to avoid the National leadership coming down to a caucus vote tomorrow

    A former National leader says deals should be done -- to avoid the National leadership coming down to a caucus vote tomorrow


    Christopher Luxon appears to have made up his mind to run for the leadership -- and is thought to have the edge on Simon Bridges in terms of numbers.

    It means the pair could face off in a leadership vote at tomorrow's caucus meeting.

    But former National leader Don Brash says Luxon would be better off striking a deal to avoid dividing the caucus with a vote.

    He says if Luxon has a strong majority position in the caucus, then it's only logical to do with a deal with Bridges.
