MEXICO CITY -- Mexican authorities say police have found the body of a man running for mayor of a northern Mexico town known for drug trafficking. He had been missing for three days.

Chihuahua state prosecutors spokesman Carlos Gonzalez says police found the body of Jaime Orozco on Wednesday along a road near the town of Guadalupe y Calvo, where he was running for mayor.

Gonzalez says the 40-year-old candidate for the ruling Institutional Revolutionary Party had been shot to death. Authorities haven't determined a motive.

Guadalupe y Calvo is nestled in a mountainous area known as "The Golden Triangle," which is used to grow marijuana and opium poppy.

Political leaders say organized crime has prevented several people from registering as candidates in other towns in the region.

Too short to excerpt.

Careful now, Rapunzel, or the Gang of Eight will call you a bigot.

We are entering revolutionary times. The law is no longer equally applied. The media are the ministry of truth. The Democratic party is a revolutionary force. And it is all getting scary. -VDH
