One future development that is hanging in the balance in Durango is whether outgoing Governor Ismael Hernández could potentially follow Beatriz Paredes as the PRI president. Hernández's would-be successor in Durango, Jorge Herrera, unveiled Hernández on Sunday night, while it appeared that he had a certain victory sewn up. However, in the days since, Herrera's eventually taking over the statehouse has become less assured. Should Herrera's nearly two-point lead somehow shrink into the red, one would think the PRI won't be inclined to hand the party presidency to Hernández, just as the candidacy of Ulises Ruiz has presumably imploded because he lost Oaxaca.
