When participating for the first time in the campaign of his brother Ciro Gomes (PDT), candidate for president, Senator Cid Gomes (PDT-CE) criticized the split in the PDT alliance with the PT in Ceará and said he would vote for Camilo Santana , PT candidate for the Senate.
The split was caused by Ciro. Santana, who governed the state, handed over to his deputy, Izolda Cela (PDT), supported by the PT. But Ciro, afraid that Izolda would also open his platform to Lula, prevented her from running for reelection.
Ciro launched the former mayor of Fortaleza, Roberto Cláudio, into the government. Izolda left the PDT. The PT launched the candidacy for the government of Elmano de Freitas. Captain Wagner, Bolsonaro’s candidate, is ahead in the polls of voting intentions.
Cid and his other brother, mayor of Sobral, home to the Gomes, do not support Roberto Cláudio. From what Cid said, what drew the most attention was the desire he expressed to see the PDT-PT alliance recomposed in the second round of the October election.
In an eventual runoff between Lula and Bolsonaro, Cid will support Lula. How he supported Fernando Haddad (PT) 4 years ago for president when Lula was in prison. As for Ciro… he can support Lula too or leave for Paris.
