Most-Populous State Heads to the Polls

March 13, 2006|From Times Wire Reports

Residents of Mexico's most populous state voted in elections for mayors and local legislative seats, in what was widely viewed as a test of the drawing power of candidates in the July 2 presidential election.

All three major parties have campaigned hard in Mexico state -- which surrounds Mexico City -- and the leftist Democratic Revolution Party saw it as a chance to find out whether front-running presidential candidate Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador may have coattails.

Candidates from the Institutional Revolutionary Party and the ruling National Action Party also were running.
