No, President Trump didn’t write a personal letter to Mexico’s leading presidential candidate, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, inquiring about the Mexican presidential plane. Nor did presidential candidate Ricardo Anaya offer to help Trump build a border wall. And Pope Francis hasn’t come out against López Obrador, a Christian.
Mexico’s presidential campaign, already dirty, has had its share of fake news headlines. And the campaign is expected to get messier. The election is less than two months away on July 1st, when voters will pick candidates in 3,400 local, state and federal races — with the six-year presidential term being the biggest prize.
The five-person race has turned into a two-man contest between the leftist-populist López Obrador of the political movement known as MORENA, and Anaya of the conservative National Action Party, or PAN, and head of a right-left coalition. López Obrador remains the frontrunner in polls released this week, following the first presidential debate on April 23. Anaya appears to be gradually gaining on him, and José Antonio Meade, candidate of the ruling Institutional Revolutionary Party, or PRI, is in third place and slipping further behind.
