1. It will be helpful to start learning more about this excellent candidate.

Clearly the right-wing will do everything possible to destroy his campaign, just as they do here. Hoping the very best man will win.

Posting another article I found after seeing your post:

Argentina to choose post-Fernandez path in primaries

Choice of candidate likely to impact whether outgoing President Cristina Fernandez's policies to aid poor will continue.

09 Aug 2015 11:38 GMT

Argentina is holding an open primary election that will gauge the country's appetite for change after eight years under the rule of outgoing President Cristina Fernandez.

The election will reveal if the public supports the policies of Fernandez, who imposed heavy state control on the economy and spent generously on welfare during her time.

The frontrunner ahead of the October 25 general election is Daniel Scioli, governor of Buenos Aires province and a member of Fernandez's party.

Running second is Mauricio Macri, the business-friendly mayor of the capital city who wants to do well enough in the October vote to force a November run-off.
