Day two after the election and Judith Collins is feeling.... fine.
After a tumultuous year with three leadership changes, the National party won less than 27 per cent of the vote.
Party leader Judith Collins told Mike Hosking the National Party candidates, volunteers, and herself did everything they could.
"Sometimes you just have to roll with it, pick yourself up and keep on going."
Collins says it's important for the party to review what went right and what went wrong during the campaign.
Collins appears to have admitted many Nats knew their party couldn't win the election.
She says teams pull themselves together and behave, when they believe they have a chance to win.
“People can show character in times of stress and trouble.
"You have some or who deal with stress differently ... and sometimes make mistakes."
