In this Monday, July 1, 2013, state police and forensic experts stand outside the home of mayoral candidate Carlos Triana Garcia after unknown gunmen opened fire on his home in Tlalixcoyan, Mexico. With only days to go in the campaign for Sunday's elections in 14 states, at least eight local politicians or their family members have been killed. Others have reported being kidnapped or shot at. Triana Garcia of the conservative National Action Party woke up at 4 a.m. Monday to a spray of gunfire on his house in the Gulf coast state of Veracruz. No one was injured in that incident, though 11 bullet casings were found. (AP Photo/Felix Marquez)
