Wednesday, January 24, 2018

A conservative Christian evangelical has jumped to the front of the race in the first round of Costa Rica's presidential election next month, boosted by his opposition to gay marriage, according to an opinion poll.

Fabricio Alvarado, a 43-year-old journalist and the only lawmaker from the evangelical National Restoration party, led the survey with 17 percent support.
