Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Carignon managed to take over the local UMP (via ballot stuffing, some say) and get himself nominated as the official UMP candidate in that traditionally right-wing district.

Other local UMP, including incumbent Richard Cazenave, were livid and even went as far as publicly calling for him to be defeated, implicitly endorsing challenger Genevieve Fioriso (PS).

Grenoblois are reputed for their irascibility and they apparently have long memories: when I arrived in Grenoble  more than 10 years ago, "Mayor jailed!" was the main headline.
