    #Madrid voted Tuesday in a regional #election in which the incumbent right-wing leader, who has made a name for herself by resisting tighter virus restrictions, is expected to win comfortably in a blow to #Spain’s socialist prime minister. Isabel Diaz Ayuso, a rising star in the conservative Popular Party (#PP), has been one of the leading critics of the handling of the pandemic by Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez’s leftist government.
