It’s official, the First Lady is the VP candidate
SANTO DOMINGO. – Ending weeks of speculation ruling PLD party candidate Danilo Medina presented Dominican Republic’s First Lady Margarita Cedeño de Fernandez as his running mate during a surprise and brief rally in Santo Domingo’s Hotel Meliá.
The announcement, which formed part of an assembly of PLD leaders, comes after a major survey favored Medina if he tapped Cedeño as the vice presidential candidate. The First Lady thanked Medina for selecting her.
In September president Leonel Fernandez told New York newspaper Diario La Prensa that his wife "has the qualities, the conditions, the preparation and the experience to be the country’s vice-president."
