After the closing of polls in the states that will renew governorships, Morena declared himself the winner in Hidalgo, Oaxaca, Quintana Roo and Tamaulipas, as well as in Durango, where he recognized a competitive election, while in Aguascalientes he ruled out having enough information to pronounce himself.
“We have an advantage in Hidalgo, Oaxaca, Quintana Roo and Tamaulipas, very competitive Durango and there is not enough information in Aguascalientes. The PRIAN made strong vote-buying operations, to try to inhibit citizen participation, we are going to go to the last consequences, we are going to denounce them,” Morena’s national leader, Mario Delgado, said in a statement.
Minutes after the polls closed, @mario_delgado said Morena has a wide advantage in four states: Hidalgo, Oaxaca, Quintana Roo and Tamaulipas. He also assured that the party is going up in Durango.

Alejandro Moreno said that in Durango the proposal of Esteban Villegas, candidate of the Va por Durango coalition, won.
“It is clear conclusively that the next governor will be Esteban Villegas,” Alejandro Moreno said.
