Mexico Politics: Mexico's old ruling PRI hits bumps in rebranding

The Associated Press: "The leader of Mexico's long-ruling political dynasty is facing some old-style scandals in his campaign to repair the party's image and regain the presidency in 2012.

Humberto Moreira, who heads the Institutional Revolutionary Party, or PRI, recently helped his party's candidate pull off a decisive gubernatorial victory in Mexico's most populous state. Now, just as the PRI under Moreira is fielding the strongest candidate in early polling for the 2012 presidential campaign, federal officials have reported a huge 34 billion peso ($2.8 billion) debt in the state of Coahuila, which Moreira governed until January."
