Mariana Rodríguez will seek the mayor of Monterrey

Mariana Rodríguez makes a move. After weeks of uncertainty, regarding her possible campaign to reach the Senate, the influencer, wife of the governor of Nuevo León, Samuel García, has decided to present her candidacy for mayor of Monterrey for the Citizen Movement (MC). “The only thing I have to say today is that I am very happy to register for you as a pre-candidate for mayor. “We are ready to continue transforming Monterrey,” she said.

Rodríguez registered as a pre-candidate in the capital of New Leon, after noon, accompanied by García himself, the current mayor of Monterrey, Luis Donaldo Colosio, and his wife, Marilú García, whom they are close to. Without knowing the plumbing of the agreements forged within the party, Rodríguez’s route would open the door of the Senate to Colosio. Designated as the party’s future presidential candidate, Colosio would use his time in the Upper House as a platform and showcase.

Rodríguez’s record feeds a certain sense of normality for her and García, after the farce in which the latter was involved, a role shared with the opposition leaders in the State. A few weeks ago, García temporarily left the governor’s office and launched his campaign for the presidency. In Nuevo León, the local Congress is in charge of electing his provisional replacement. Unfortunately for García, Movimiento Ciudadano does not have a majority in the chamber.

A battle then began between MC and the PRI and the PAN for state power. García wanted to name his replacement, but the opposition leaders, with a majority in the chamber, prevailed. They managed to appoint a substitute governor, a move that forced García to abandon his presidential aspirations and try to regain his position. The opposition tried to prop up his replacement, fueling the already serious institutional crisis. Accusations of coup plotters and criminals were exchanged until, at the beginning of the week, the opposition finally gave in.
