The National Party heavyweight resigned from cabinet on Saturday after an email emerged linking her to a 2011 campaign against then-Serious Fraud Office chief executive Adam Feeley.

"She is extremely supportive of all the other women in the caucus as well.

She's a good team player and she’s a good leader," she says.
