Jorge Fernández Menéndez, “PRD: el dinero y el líder:” AMLO had been leading the PRD for almost twenty years when his departure was announced last week, which means that the country could modernize, but it leaves two issues, money and leadership.  The money which López Obrador is using to fund Moreno indirectly belongs to the PRD, if PRD governors cut support for AMLO Morena will seriously lose economic capability.  The PRD also needs to create new leaders so as to contrast with AMLO, Marcelo Ebrard has already volunteered himself as has Miguel Mancera, but they need to create leaders not candidates, another option could be Lázaro Cárdenas Batel, Cuauhtémoc’s son.
