The Prime Minister said the Tories must demonstrate that they are "decent, moderate and patriotic" and "deliver on the issues people care about".
All eyes may be on Theresa May as she addresses the Conservative Party conference in Birmingham on Wednesday - but numerous paper's column inches are dedicated to a fellow top Tory: Boris Johnson.
May took on her detractors in a punchy address to the party's annual conference, a day after a rival, former Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, challenged her authority with a speech of his own.
Johnson, the figurehead for the campaign to leave the European Union and the bookmakers' favourite to replace May, has become the loudest critic, warning Conservatives that if they supported Chequers they could be signing up to the party's electoral death. But today she was the one with the mojo, not Bojo.
Appealing to voters tired of belt-tightening, she said: "Because you made sacrifices, there are better days ahead. Later: Even if we do not all agree on every part of this proposal, we need to come together".
May's public battle with Johnson comes only two weeks before she must return to Brussels in a bid to break the Brexit deadlock and reach a deal.
Confirming there would be no second referendum, she said: "It would be a "politicians" vote" - politicians telling people they got it wrong the first time and should try again'.

Mrs May yesterday insisted her Chequers proposal, which she did not actually refer to by name, would maintain a "seamless border" in Northern Ireland, which she described as a 'bedrock of peace and stability'.
May's "Chequers plan" envisages the country staying closely aligned to Europe in terms of trade and regulations although the deal foresees the United Kingdom being able to stop the free movement of people from the EU. But instead of the available support coalescing around a candidate, the party is splintered: on Brexit, on the domestic agenda and what they want the personality of their future leader to be. An undeterred May called on her colleagues to work towards making the Conservatives a party "not for the few, not even for the many but for everyone who is willing to work hard and do their best".
She will re-iterate her commitment to helping people on low incomes by ruling out any increase in fuel duty in the Budget on 29 October.

"It is no surprise that we have had a range of different views expressed this week", Mrs May said.
"So when we've secured a good Brexit deal for Britain, at the spending review next year we will set out our approach for the future".
Meanwhile Nigel Dodds, the deputy leader of the DUP which props up the Government, in the Commons issued a fresh warning that they would not accept any deal which imposes a border checks between Northern Ireland and the rest of the UK.
After a decade of austerity that has seen public sector pay restraint and real terms funding cuts for many public services, May said that national debt is beginning to fall and "people need to know that their hard work has paid off".
