Close Election In Mexico

A Mexican Standoff Runoff:

MEXICO CITY, Mexico (CNN) — Two leading candidates have claimed victory in Mexico’s presidential vote, even as the country’s top election official deemed the result too close to call.
…With only 52 percent of the vote counted so far, news agencies quoted conservative Felipe Calderon of the ruling National Action Party as having 38 percent of the vote.
Leftist Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador of the coalition, led by the Democratic Revolution party, has nearly 36 percent.

Both candidates, reached via cell phone over the weekend while they were in Rumson, NJ, attending to their lawn-care business, expressed confidence in their ultimate victory.

    Funny thing is, the winner gets to STAY in Rumson; the loser has to run Mexico.
