The rejection of the former Midachi Miguel del Sel to the proposal to head a unit list fractured the partnership between Horacio Rodríguez Larreta and Elisa Carrió in Santa Fe. Contrary to what is being planned in his district, the Buenos Aires chief hugged the tough wing of the PRO and quickly blessed the incorporation of the model Amalia Granata to the formula that will compete in the PASO for the Senate.
The provincial deputy emblem of anti-abortion and the heavy hand arrived on Thursday at the government headquarters of Parque Patricios by no less than Patricia Bullrich. The party leader, displaced by Larreta from the list in Capital, had just sealed the agreement with Granata -of the block “We are Life “- together with Federico Angelini, vice of the PRO and who will finally head the macrista payroll, facing three variants of radicalism. One of them has the endorsement of Carrió.

The Santa Fe election is key to Cristina Kirchner’s claims to maintain absolute control of the upper house. The PC risks two benches and is sunk in a sea of doubts. Together for the Change bet on Add one that Carlos Reutemann left and after his death will be occupied by Alejandra Vucasovich. While socialism will try to third, after the blow that caused the death by Covid of Miguel Lifschitz, one of the favorites, and his widow, Clara García, decided to take the post, although he must go through the internal of the Progressive Front.
“Force Miguel now I feel that it is for me”, The former Rosario official said days ago when she took charge of La Usina, the think tank created by the former governor. It was the virtual launch of the campaign that, he anticipated, will point less to memory than to hope.
However, he did not manage to subdue the march of the mayor of Rosario, the former radical Pablo Javkin, towards the fight for leadership from space. Negotiate with Rubén Giustiniani, who left with socialism in 2015, to return to run for a seat in the Senate, where he remained for twelve years. Pablo Oliver, a legislator for the UCR who is still in the Front, would be the first deputy. Although the Socialists would offer Giustiniani that place of higher expectations, in exchange for him to put down the grudges that led him to arm the provincial Equality and Participation party.
In the ruling party is where the waters run stormy. To the fall in the image of the Perotti government is added the already folkloric struggle between the traditional PJ and Kirchnerism, which until now could not convince Agustín Rossi so he got off the Defense Ministry to compete on slippery terrain.
On the side of Perotti they bet on the re-election of Roberto Mirabella and La Cámpora wants the same for María de los Angeles Sacnun, who runs with advantages: Cristina placed her at the head of the strategic Commission on Constitutional Affairs. But since no one moves the ammeter, party sources confided to Clarín that they started to measure to the director of Migrations, Florencia Carignano, and the head of the block of provincial deputies, Leandro Busatto, son-in-law of the “albertista” publicist Enrique Albistur.
Larreta and Bullrich are now bidding for Granata and the almost 300,000 votes he garnered two years ago for their respective presidential projects. But their foray into the Santa Fe internship of Together for Change will not be easy for them. Carrió endorsed the multi-party list which leads the former radical leader, José Corral, for senator, and the macrista Roy López Molina, popular councilor of Rosario, as the first deputy, followed by the “lilita” Lucila Lehman.
Another list that wants to win a poster is the one that the journalist Carolina Losada will lead, incorporation blessed by the radical leader, Alfredo Cornejo, and who will lead the former ambassador to Uruguay, Mario Barletta, as a deputy. As he prepares to make the leap of the Progressive Front as the fourth candidate for senator of Together for Change Maximiliano Pullaro, head of the block of provincial deputies of the UCR and Minister of Security during the four years of Lifschitz’s tenure.
