No, PRD is also set to wrest from PAN two of its bastions, due chiefly to the absolute misrule of PAN's delegation chiefs there:
* In Cuajimalpa, PRD's Rosendo Rodríguez looks set to win, with double-digit leads
* In Miguel Hidalgo, PRD's Víctor Hugo Romo is far ahead of his rivals, given the disastrous administration of PAN's Demetrio Sodi
* While PAN is still ahead, even Benito Juárez is in play, truly a shocker in local politics.
The left has clearly shown it can govern.
While Enrique Peña Nieto will likely be Mexico's next president, he certainly will get no pull from PRI in Mexico City; indeed, Paredes' candidacy was meant to do so, yet her campaign posters are now being quietly removed in favor of those of Peña, as she is ironically pulling down his Mexico City vote instead.
And with a Peña Nieto presidency, it will be ever more important to maintain Mexico City as a strong counterweight.
