This paper responds to Denver and Hands' critique of our approach to the study of local campaign effects at British general elections. We provide both substantive and technical rationales for our approach, and illustrate its use with recent data. The Conservatives may to some extent be a 'special case', but we have strong evidence of differences between incumbents and challengers, whatever the party.
