Tasmania's Liberal Premier Peter Gutwein says he's happy to have under-fire Prime Minister Scott Morrison join him on the state election campaign trail.
The island state will head to the polls on May 1 after Mr Gutwein last week called the snap election for a year before its due date.
The prime minister has copped intense criticism in recent weeks over his handling of allegations of rape, sexual harassment and poor behaviour towards woman in Canberra.
Mr Gutwein was asked on Tuesday whether Mr Morrison's presence would hurt his push for re-election.
"I've made it perfectly clear that I expect Mr Morrison will be here through the month of April and obviously I'm happy to campaign with him," he told reporters.
"He's the PM of this country and I'm happy to have him on the trail."
Mr Gutwein is riding high in local polls, with a 61-26 per cent lead over Labor leader Rebecca White as preferred premier.
Ms White said she was surprised Mr Morrison had "the balls" to show his face in Tasmania after cutting JobKeeper.
"He should be ashamed how he has treated Tasmanian businesses and workers," she said.
The Liberals made several commitments on Tuesday, pledging $42 million towards the redevelopment of the Hobart Showgrounds which includes a plan to build 450 new homes.
They also announced $13.8 million would be invested in a jobs package, including four new regional 'jobs hubs' at Huonville, Burnie, Brighton and St Helens.
Labor has proposed new anti-protest laws and fines of up to $10,000 and two years' jail for people who disrupt businesses activity.
Mr Gutwein called the election after his government was plunged into minority when Speaker Sue Hickey quit the Liberals to sit as an independent.
But his timing has been questioned after independent Madeleine Ogilvie announced she would run at the election as a Liberal - a switch that, had it occurred earlier, could have prevented minority government.
