Américo Villareal, Morena’s candidate in Tamaulipas, triumphed over César Verástegui, who served as government secretary in the current PAN administration. Villareal . . . won 50 percent of the vote compared to 44 percent for Verástegui.
President López Obrador asserted Monday that the opposition’s “classism” was a factor . . . in the states won by Morena, a party he founded.
“I shouldn’t be giving advice . . . but they should carry out a review of their strategy, it affects them a lot . . . their classism, their racism” he told reporters at his morning news conference. “They show disdain for people, they have no love for people,” claimed López Obrador, who continues to enjoy a high approval rating 3 1/2 years after taking office.
