Even though the results will continued to be counted tonight and not fully confirmed until Wednesday, Mexico's Institute of Federal Elections (IFE) announced tonight at 12:15 am EST that Enrique Peña Nieto of the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) was leading in the country's official "Quick Count." Tonight's results included 7,500 voting locations that are a representative sample of the entire country. Although Peña Nieto has not been officially elected as Mexico's president, the latest information released tonight adds to the very strong possibility that Peña Nieto will become the president of Mexico. Hell, his web page announced it an hour ago.
