Bolsonaro and Lula head to Brazil presidential runoff – https://www.axios.com/2022/10/03/brazil-election-bolsonaro-lula-results-runoff
"Brazil’s far-right President Jair Bolsonaro and leftist former President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva will face off in a runoff this month after neither political heavyweight clinched more than 50% of the vote Sunday.
Driving the news: Lula, who consistently led in the polls ahead of Sunday’s election, captured 48.4% of the vote, while Bolsonaro got 43.2%, per Brazil’s electoral authority.
Lula will be the heavy favorite heading into the Oct. 30 runoff, though a late charge from Bolsonaro can’t be ruled out. He performed better than expected on Sunday.
What they’re saying: Lula at a news conference in Brasília compared the runoff vote to "extra time" in a soccer game, according to AP."
