Torres Félix insisted that Rubén Rocha, former chief of advisers to Governor Quirino Ordaz Coppel, is at the service of Sinaloa’s economic and political interests. «I will rule for the Sinaloans, not for AMLO or Quirino. I will be accountable to the Sinaloians,» said former Fisheries Secretary.The Sinaloenses elected me as their candidate: Gerardo Vargas Landeros, An aspiring to Morena’s candidacy

After the appointment of Rubén Rocha as Mor’s candidatesinaloa’s gubernatura, Jesús Valdés Palazuelos, state president of the PRI and aspiring candidate for his party’s candidacy for the gubernatura, assured that regardless of who the opponents are, as a party they are ready to win in the 2021 election.Valdés Palazuelos advanced that, according to the internal PROCESS of the PRI, because it is up to them to nominate the standard-bearer to the gubernatura in the coalition with the PAN and PRD , it will be January 22 when they make the candidate known.

Rubén Rocha was Morena’s best decision: Aurelia Leal, Mayor of Guasave
«Undoubtedly, it is a very wise decision by Morena in proposing as a pre-candidate to the governor of Sinaloa Dr. Rubén Rocha Moya, a left-wing politician with a very clear vision of what Sinaloa requires in his yearnings for progress, in accordance with the postulates of the Fourth Transformation. Rocha Moya goes ahead as a result of a democratic process where various profiles of valuable characters were analyzed and put on the table that must now be added to a project called Sinaloa. Today is the time to join forces and wills in the goal of Sinaloa giving a rudder blow, framed in the ideals of Andrés Manuel López Obrador, and is directed by the course set by the federal government for the benefit of the most unprotected sectors». They are not respecting my rights: Luis Guillermo Benítez, Mayor of Mazatlan
Hours after meeting the nomination of Rubén Rocha Moya as Morena’s candidate for the governor of Sinaloa, the mayor of Mazatlan and aspiring to the same candidacy, Luis Guillermo Benítez Torres, published a video in which he denounces that his rights are not being respected: «What happened today in the CEN of Morena moves me to continue in the fight. I know we won the polls (to define the candidacy),» he said. «I will fight, as the president of the republic (Andrés Manuel López Obrador) did at the time to prevent the PRI, which does not yet die, from still affecting Sinaloa.» He announced strong measures to stop the betrayal of the people of Sinaloa.Rubén Rocha fought for his appointment, and succeeded: Alba Virgen Montes, President of the PAS in Guasave
«The Sinaloan Party is respectful of the nominations made by the other political institutes, and the appointment of Master Rubén Rocha Moya by Morena is their decision, as there were several candidates, and he fought for his appointment, until he achieved it. The PAS, as our leader, Master Héctor Melesio Cuen Ojeda, has said, is ready to participate in this electoral contest by having a consolidated structure, and is also open to common candidacies, as the law points out, and in Sinaloa there are parties that did not make coalitions in the state, such as the Labour Party, Green Ecologicalist Party , Brunette and Citizen Movement». Rocha’s designation to the PRI takes care of us: Dulce María Ruiz Castro, President of the PRI in Ahome
«The appointment of Morena’s candidate to the pri governor’s candidate keeps us careless, since he is not a relevant and current character, as he once represented. Today there are new leadership that has even formed a state party. As a senator, he is from andrés Manuel López Obrador’s wave, so I don’t think he represents a candidacy strong enough to win. For our part, the PRI, we are moving forward: agreeing on the alliance and consolidating our unity with our supporters and today our allies, uniting efforts and experience.» The process was an electoral «dedazo»: Ariel Aguilar Algándar, President of the PAN in Ahome
«The process in which Rubén Rocha Moya was appointed as a candidate for the gubernatura by Morena was a very unsealed process, a «deedazo», a large voter finger that is putting him as a candidate for the Government of Sinaloa. The morenistas are completely divided, a party without structure, and a militancy completely confronted and found. They got atole with their finger. They were sold pure fallacies, where they were told that by a democratic method the candidate was to be appointed. Lie. It didn’t happen that way, and what they once criticized, which on other occasions shouted at the four winds that wasn’t going to happen in their party, today is the ultimate representation in Morena: the Dudedazo, the designation by a large voter finger by a tlatoani. Morena is a divided party, an incongruous party, and most of them are a crouching militancy.» They were not wrong to choose Rocha Moya: Claudio López, Regidor de Mocorito
«Senator Rubén Rocha Moya is an excellent candidate, and I congratulate To Mario Delgado, national president of Morena, for this consultation process, and we invite him to continue in the next processes so that all candidates for certain positions will be strengthened. Consulting and asking people is something the country needs a lot, and how good that Morena is doing it. A good choice has been made, and I believe that in 2021 we will have a top governor in Sinaloa. Morena was not wrong, as Rocha Moya is a very good candidate. Now what is coming is to work in the unit, because I believe that all the applicants there were are important paintings in Sinaloa, and they must join the project.» I think with Rocha Moya we will win: Patricia Dautt, Regidora de Morena in Salvador Alvarado
«I am much calmer, because our party has already decided who will be our candidate. Actually, I always respected the decision of my party, and I think with Rocha Moya we’re going to win in Sinaloa state. Besides, I’m sure he’ll be a candidate who’s going to represent both us, the members of Morena, and all the Sinaloans. Let us hope that Rocha Moya will carry out the Fourth Transformation, which is what our president of the republic, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, has sent us and instilled in us as a message. I hope that he will follow the same path as the president of the republic so that Sinaloa will also have a good change, just as the country has been having.» Angostura is ready to provide support: José Luis Beltrán, Councilor
