Gaining Space as the President’s Candidate Jair Bolsonaro to the government of São Paulo, the Minister of Infrastructure, Tarcisio Gomes de Freitas, is little concerned with the voluptuousness of the former Minister of Education Abraham Weintraub to become chancellor as the postulant to substitute João Doria at Palácio dos Bandeirantes with the support of Palácio do Planalto. According to the minister’s allies, Weintraub causes discomfort, but does not worry.
They understand that the penetration of a Weintraub campaign would have limited success and say that the president does not buy the adventure of the former head of Education. “The candidacy is not going anywhere. Just work. At some point he will have to take a step back.” Asked whether Tarcísio’s entry into party politics will have a negative impact on the ministry’s delivery schedule, advisers downplay the fact. They say, on the contrary. This would be the great asset of Gomes de Freitas’ campaign, which seeks, in addition to Bolsonaristas, voters from the center.
