Several Mexican media outlets reported on Nov. 24 that Eduardo Verastegui, internationally known Catholic actor and producer, could be a serious candidate in the country's 2018 presidential elections.
"Eduardo Verastegui could be the Social Encounter Party candidate in 2018" an El Universal headline read.
On the same day, El Debate led with "Eduardo Verastegui, a candidate for the presidency in 2018?"
Mexican media speculated on the possibility of Verastegui's candidacy after statements made by the president of the Social Encounter Party, Hugo Eric Flores, who confirmed to the press that he is in "conversations" with the Catholic actor and producer for an "important" position on their slate of candidates.
