On July 1, tens of millions of Mexicans will go to the polls. They will elect a president, a congress, and thousands of state and local officials. Who are the major candidates for the presidency? What are the major parties contesting the congress? What will be the election’s salient issues? What are the stakes for the United States?
In this podcast, Tony Payan, the Françoise and Edward Djerejian Fellow for Mexico Studies and director of the Mexico Center, and Enrique Quezada, graduate fellow for the Baker Institute’s Mexico Center and host of “Mexico Centered,” discuss the candidates, the parties, the platforms and the potential ramifications of the election for Mexico and the U.S.-Mexico relationship.
