Fernandez Ally Zamora Wins Re-Election In Argentina
K Radical candidate for governor wins 85% of votes.

BUENOS AIRES -- Gerardo Zamora, an ally of President Cristina Fernandez, was re-elected with more than 85 percent of the votes as governor of the northern Argentine province of Santiago del Estero, according to official results released Monday.

With 99 percent of the vote counted, Zamora crushed Marcelo Lugones, of the FUP party, who only managed to garner 5 percent of the ballots.

"Madame President, you are a part of this triumph," Zamora, of the Civic Front for Santiago, said.

The governor is of the so-called "K radicals," members of the opposition Radical Civic Union party that supported the 2003-2007 administration of Nestor Kirchner and backed his wife and successor, both of whom are with the Peronist Party.

The Front for Victory, which Kirchner heads on the national level, did not field its own candidate for governor of Santiago del Estero and backed Zamora, although they did have their own candidates in the running for various legislative posts there.

Zamora said he had spoken by telephone on Sunday night with Fernandez, who congratulated him on the win, and Argentine Interior Minister Florencio Randazzo was in Santiago del Estero to monitor the progress of the elections. EFE
