Boris Johnson won easily and overwhelmingly. He had the advantage with 
the Tory press, the parliamentary party, and the grassroots. He was 
backed across the spectrum of Tory newspapers, editors and journalists, 
from Remainers to Leavers. The London free sheet that acted as an 
auxiliary to the mayor's office while Boris was in charge, offered its 
services as an official candidate fluffer. His opponent was barely 
present, and barely an opponent. The fact that one third of Tory members 
voted for Jeremy Hunt has nothing to do with Jeremy Hunt, and everything 
to do with Boris Johnson.
