Pauline Hanson is coming to Gladstone

ONE Nation federal leader Pauline Hanson will visit Gladstone this evening to officially launch the campaign of candidate Amy Lohse.

It will be the first visit to Gladstone by a state or federal party leader since the election was called on October 29.

Senator Hanson launched her Queensland campaigning in Brisbane yesterday by christening her new "Battler Bus" with a bottle of champagne, and rolled in to Gympie just after midday.

The bus will bring Senator Hanson to key regional seats around the state, including in Central Queensland.

Adviser James Ashby said the Senator was in town to launch Ms Lohse's campaign only and would not be making any "you-beaut campaign announcements" because "we're not about pork-barrelling".

Senator Hanson and Ms Lohse will hold a public meet-and-greet outside the Gladstone Entertainment Convention Centre at 5pm.
