PRI Wins Gubernatorial Election in Mexico State

MEXICO CITY – Governing Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) candidate Alfredo del Mazo won the gubernatorial election in Mexico state, which surrounds the Federal District and forms part of the Mexico City metropolitan area, garnering 33.7 percent of the vote, with 97 percent of the ballots counted, election officials said Monday.

Voter turnout was 52.53 percent in Sunday’s election.

Del Mazo received 1.94 million votes, giving him a lead of nearly 167,000 votes over Gomez in the race to run Mexico state, the country’s most populous state and a region considered a barometer for the 2018 presidential election.
