Mexico Politics - Violence: Mexico Mayor Slain Campaigning for Calderon's Sister

ABC News: "A mayor in Mexico's western state of Michoacan was shot dead Wednesday night while campaigning for President Felipe Calderon's sister in her run for the governorship. Mayor Ricardo Guzman of La Piedad was passing out campaign material when an SUV drove by and a gunman opened fire, said Jonathan Arredondo, spokesman of the state Attorney General's Office. The office initially said a man had pointed a gun at Guzman's head and fired.

The 45-year-old mayor was campaigning for gubernatorial candidate Luisa Maria Calderon, who belongs to the National Action Party, or PAN, like her brother. She is a contender in the Nov. 13 state elections." read more
