Brother of slain candidate to be PRI standard bearer in Tamaulipas

The PRI Tamaulipas state committee proposed Egidio Torre Cantú, the brother of Rodolfo, as its replacement candidate for governor.  Egidio served as the substitute mayor of the capital city of Victoria in 2000-01.  The PRI national committee needs to ratify the choice, and it is expected that the new candidate will be registered today. Egidio will not have any opportunity to campaign, as the quite period begins today for the vote on July 4th. The pre-election polls show that the PRI had an overwhelming lead in the race for governor. (Reforma 6/30, Universal 6/30)
