She is not a candidate but she is active in the campaign. Elisa Carrió is on a proselytizing tour around the country and, just as she supports her own candidates, she has no reservations about increase internal rivalries Together for Change. This was made clear in his visit to Entre Ríos, from where he published a video with a warning: “Look, there is one who is going to betray you,” he said in clear reference to Rogelio Frigerio.
The founder of the opposition army has an affront to the candidate for deputy who heads one of the lists in that province. Carrió strongly rivaled Frigerio since she was a deputy and he, Mauricio Macri’s Interior Minister during his four years in office. There were few times that he treated him as a traitor. And apparently he is still holding it.
Carrió went to the province governed by Gustavo Bordet to support the 502-B list that rivals that of Frigerio -president of the local PRO- in the assembly of Juntos por Entre Ríos and leads Pedro Galimberti.
“I am Lilita, you have known me for more than 25 years,” he started in the video that he posted on his Twitter account to ask for a vote for a list “where there are women from Concordia, Ramírez, Crespo” and who make it up. “mayors who they have management and they have cause“.
Carrió continued: “There are radicals here, there are people from the PRO, from the Civic Coalition. We are all together“And there, in the last moment of his 42-second video, he warned:” Vote that list, huh. Look there is one that he will betray you“.
He didn’t mention it to Frigerio. It was not necessary.
Love-hate usually rules Carrió’s verba. And just as he can express excessive gestures of affection and support with María Eugenia Vidal in the City of Buenos Aires or with Diego Santilli in Buenos Aires, he can count the ribs as Facundo Manes, the radical who said he had received an offer of candidacy for vice president that the former deputy denies and threatens to correct in court and with accusations of mythomania.
Together for mistrust
With Frigerio the question comes from afar, since the middle of the Macri government, at least publicly. The former minister was always viewed with suspicion since cooled to extinction his relationship with Emilio Monzó -not so casually sheltered with Manes-, then president of the Chamber of Deputies, where Carrió tensed the relationship live and on campus.

Monzó, Frigerio and Nicolás Massot -who was insulted in Congress- were a tandem of Peronist origin from which Carrió began first to distrust and then accuse of treason for his moderate and negotiating positions with the opposition during the Macrista government.
That warmth for someFor the complainant of Kirchner corruption it meant something else. Benefits for the Peronists of the other side, contemplations with the assembly of Sergio Massa and concessions for PJ governors.
“He is the one who maintained the relationship with the governors, gave excessive moneyTo such an extent that everyone had fixed-term money in the PJ provinces and thus PJ candidates were promoted. Frigerio validated the provincial regimes“Carrió snapped, in February of this year, before this campaign but when the former minister was already talking about his intention to be governor of Entre Ríos in 2023.
It was not a lost phrase. Carrió spoke of the perpetuity of Peronist fiefdoms like that of Gildo Insfrán when he targeted Frigerio at the time.
Days before Macri’s electoral defeat, he had said something similar. “What do I care about Frigerio. He handed us over to the entire nation, so I don’t care. He made PJ candidates government candidates,” Carrió said and accused the minister of “hiding things.”
