Los Angeles Times weighs in

The Los Angeles Times, never a friend to right wing causes, has published an editorial which should sting AMLO as much as Tabasco's voters did last Sunday.,0,5106147.story?coll=la-opinion-leftrail

"Voters in the southeast state, a stronghold of Lopez Obrador's leftist Democratic Revolution Party, or PRD, have delivered the following message to the former presidential candidate: Get over yourself. By a 10-point margin, they elected Andres Granier, the candidate of the Institutional Revolutionary Party, or PRI. This after Lopez Obrador spent three weeks campaigning alongside his party's candidate, Cesar Raul Ojeda. Before Lopez Obrador's meltdown last summer, Ojeda had been leading in the polls."

"Ojeda adhered to his political godfather, Lopez Obrador, signing off on his ludicrous claim that the national election was stolen."

" ... it appears that his party is the victim of one man's megalomania. If upheld, the results in Tabasco will be an encouraging sign that most Mexicans, even in Lopez Obrador's home state, now accept the verdict of July's presidential election."
