Allahpundit is reporting that Calderon, the conservative candidate – or at least the one NOT funded and supported by Hugo Chavez – has won the Mexican election, largely with support from ranchers and farmers in northern Mexico.
We’ll see how conservative he is now, especially since his party now has the majority in congress. He does have a lot of work cut out for him. Boosting property rights, dropping taxes and regulations while improving education, tackling corruption in the police, military and judicial systems. These reforms are crucial, as depending on foreign remittances is just no way to run a country for long. It is a tough job. We shall see how he does.
Big Lizards has more coverage. Looks like AMLO is about to get his Al Gore on. What’s Spanish for Move on?
