Info on the Gubernatorial Races

Zacatecas is one of the few state races where the PRI is down, while the PRD is up; the latter party's candidate has a three-point lead ahead of the July 4 elections. Of course, three points is a narrow lead and a lot can happen there. There is no PAN-PRD alliance in place in Zacatecas (the PRD is so dominant that it presumably felt that it'd have nothing to gain there), but given broader climate of collaboration between the parties, I wonder if the PAN candidate (who ran a not-insignificant 14 percent in the same poll) will drop out if the race remains neck and neck.

In Oaxaca, the offices of the alliance candidate Gabino Cué, who is taking on the PRI machine of Ulises Ruiz, were sabotaged when the lights were cut off earlier this week.
