About This Blog
Welcome to Mexico Votes 2006, a daily dose of news and analysis on Mexico's hotly contested presidential race.
The July 2 election is the first to be held since 2000, when Vicente Fox's National Action Party (PAN) knocked the long ruling Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) from power for the first time in more than seven decades. While Fox's ascension marked a historic shift in government, many of his campaign pledges of reform - among them a new economy and a major crackdown on crime and corruption - remain unfulfilled. Five candidates are now competing to replace him.
Special correspondent Ceci Connolly, who covered the 2000 Bush-Gore contest for The Washington Post, brings her campaign trail experience to the Mexican political scene. Connolly will blog from Mexico City, offering a daily mix of media commentary, newsmaker interviews, political analysis and campaign tidbits.
Also, check in regularly for on-the-ground coverage by Manuel Roig-Franzia, Washington Post Mexico City Bureau Chief, and special reports from video journalist Christina Pino-Marina.
