2010 Mexican gubernatorial elections

Gubernatorial elections were held in fourteen Mexican states on Sunday, July 4, 2010.[1] The gubernatorial elections were held simultaneously with other state and local elections.[1] Elections for governor were held in Aguascalientes, Chiapas, Chihuahua, Durango, Hidalgo, Oaxaca, Puebla, Quintana Roo, Sinaloa, Tamaulipas, Tlaxcala, Veracruz and Zacatecas.

A multi-party alliance between President Felipe Calderón's National Action Party (PAN) and left-wing parties won elections in Oaxaca, Puebla and Sinaloa.[1][2]

The Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI), led by Beatriz Paredes, captured Aguascalientes and Tlaxcala from PAN and also picked up the governor's mansion in Zacatecas from the Party of the Democratic Revolution (PRD).[1]
