President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner and her allies lost by large margins in the biggest and most important elections in the country yesterday. Her legislative lists were crushed in Buenos Aires (both city and state), Cordoba, Mendoza, and Santa Fe. There is a reason that every major newspaper is talking about her defeat and even the pro-Kirchner media is relatively subdued in its spin. The voting showed a clear rejection of the president and a serious drop from her big 2011 election win.
