State Police Forces Gain Steam
The plan to replace municipal police departments with a single state body was approved by the legislature in Coahuila, and also earned the support of Marcelo Ebrard. As long as we're on the topic of the Mexico City mayor, he recently reiterated his belief that the left must go into 2012 with a single candidate, which basically means Ebrard of AMLO rather than both. If support among the PRD is any indication (and one suspects that AMLO's lead only grows in the non-PRD left), that means that Ebrard will be forced to go back on his words or step aside for another AMLO run.
