    Opposition transport spokeswoman Jodi McKay is firming as the front-runner in the contest for the NSW Labor leadership, with almost half the shadow cabinet publicly backing her.

    However, supporters of water spokesman and Kogarah MP Chris Minns, who is also contesting the leadership, are quick to point out that the month-long campaign is still in its infancy.

    Strathfield MP Jodie McKay and Kogarah MP Chris Minns will begin their first full week of campaigning for the Labor leadership as the party prepares for the historic vote.

    "It's very early days," Summer Hill MP Jo Haylen, who is backing Mr Minns, said.

    "There are a lot of MPs who haven't publicly declared how they will vote and the branch members are only just starting to get engaged."
