He began to tour the country, meeting with groups of citizens, some unions, key sectors in the social and economic life of the country. These days, a week before the second round, she is finishing a tour of media and meetings in the United States.
Meanwhile, in Colombia they claimed him for not going to debates and not being in the country these last days, before the first round he traveled from Gato de Tejada in Cali to Putumayo, he made more than 50 trips. He did not include Vichada, who said he did not know where he was or what he was. Later it was.
