Lopez bows out of Venezuela presidential race

http://news.yahoo.com/lopez-bows-venezuela-presidential-race-165755070.html

»CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) — Opposition politician Leopoldo Lopez bowed out of Venezuela's presidential race on Tuesday, saying he will support front-runner Henrique Capriles Radonski.

The announcement gives a significant boost to Capriles, who has a commanding lead in the polls ahead of the Feb. 12 opposition primary. The vote is to choose a single challenger to face President Hugo Chavez in the Oct. 7 presidential election.

"You will be the next president," Lopez said at a news conference with Capriles. The two embraced and raised their arms before a cheering crowd.

3. Good. HCR needs to have unanimous support once he wins.

Looks like it's better than I thought, he's siding with HCR! Fascinating!
