Mexico election results hurt PRI's comeback bid

Plans by Mexico's once-dominant Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) to score a comeback in next year's presidential elections stumbled Monday when vote-counting showed that its candidate had lost a key gubernatorial race. PRI candidate Manuel Anorve won just 42.6 percent of the vote in the race for governor of Guerrero state. The winner in Sunday's balloting was Angel Aguirre, who headed a coalition of leftist parties.
