Mexican Politicians Need to Game the System

Here's the gist. Candidates are not allowed to campaign for the general election until March. However, they can campaign in the primaries, gaining exposure to the entire electorate, now. "Institutional Revolutionary nominee Enrique Pena Nieto and leftist Democratic Revolution Party nominee Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador are both running uncontested and their parties won’t be holding primaries....The ruling conservative National Action Party, however, has not chosen its candidate and the national electoral institute has said its three contenders can campaign for the party nomination until primary season ends in mid-February."

Now the other candidates are all "waaah it's not fair." If you ask me, The Institutional Revolutionary Party and the Democratic Revolution Party should have run puppet candidates in order to give their real candidates a national platform. Head in the game guys, head in the game.

Vaya Con Dios,
