Zapatero supports "Zapatera"
In Toulouse today Spanish Prime Minister José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero will publicly endorse fellow socialist Segolene Royal for the presidency. Segolene Royal was nicknamed "Zapatera" by the French media after winning in the hotly contested Poitou-Charentes region. That election, in April 2004, took place just one month after Zapatero's win in Spain, which was itself three days after the Madrid train bombings.
