NPR's Gerry Hadden reports from Mexico on the results of the presidential election. Official projections of the final vote count show opposition candidate Vicente Fox the clear winner. Fox's victory ends the 71-year rule of the Institutional Revolutionary Party, or PRI. The former rancher and Coca-Cola executive says he will stop corruption, double spending for public education, and jump-start the economy with foreign investment and jobs programs.
