PAN in Guanajuato elected local deputy Gerardo Trujillo Flores to the important post of state party leader, ahead of the 2012 gubernatorial contest.
This is notable as he beat out Alejandra Reynoso Sánchez, the candidate of Governor Juan Manuel Oliva, who is identified with the far-right Catholic secret society El Yunque, as is outgoing state leader Fernando Torres Graciano.
This is a win for federal health secretary José Ángel Córdova Villalobos, a relatively progressive panista, who wants to be governor, yet is opposed by the governor and El Yunque.

National president of the Partido Acción Nacional (PAN), Gustavo Madero, accused the PRI of having colluded-turned the blind eye, to drug trafficking for decades:
"The eggs of the snake were nesting for years. They made pacts with the narco traffickers, and now we are paying for these omissions."Yet this is perhaps what many would want the PRI back for: A new "national pact" with the drug gangs.
