ENSENADA, Mexico — Carlos Salinas de Gortari, certain to become Mexico's next president, wound up his first campaign tour Wednesday of Northern Baja California state.

"We Mexicans have a culture, a history and pride that prevent any attempt at foreign penetration," he said Tuesday night during a question-and-answer session that was televised throughout the state.

As the candidate of the ruling Institutional Revolutionary Party, Salinas is certain to win next July's election and be inaugurated on Dec. 1, 1988, to a six-year term.
