Alberto Fernández heads to Bolivia, Peru to meet leaders

Frente de Todos frontrunner will meet with presidents Evo Morales and Martín Vizcarra for talks during two-day trip.

Presidential hopeful Alberto Fernández arrived in Bolivia this afternoon, the first stop of a two-day mini-tour.

It will be a brief stay in Bolivia, however, for Fernández, who will fly off tomorrow morning to Lima, arriving around midday.

In Peru, the former Cabinet chief will meet with President Martín Vizcarra, on the second stop of his brief trip overseas.

That evening, he will dine with the the president of the Peruvian Congress and some lawmakers.

Its the second tour Fernández has taken overseas, following his visits to Spain and Portugal earlier this month.

The Frente de Todos hopeful will be accompanied on his trip by Campaign Manager Santiago Cafiero, Communications chief Juan Pablo Biondi, the mayors of San Martín and Hurlingham, Gabriel Katopodis and Juan Zabaleta, and national lawmaker Felipe Solá, among others.
