And Cospedal we take it for eliminated except that it wants to hump it to her. "
"The ideal is that three tenors are presented and that each one is accompanied by a third of apparatus," summed up Luis Asúa, who in 2017 competed with Cristina Cifuentes for presidency of PP of community of Madrid. "So whoever wins kills two thirds of organization and gives us a regenerative option."
"The panorama is open to any scenario," continued José Luis Bayo, a leader of new generations who tries to gar 100 guarantees necessary to present his candidacy.
