MIAMI (CBSMiami) — Hugo Chavez’s hand-picked successor has won Venezuela’s presidential election and his challenger Henrique Capriles, along with South Florida Venezuelans, are not happy about it.
Venezuela’s election board said Nicolas Maduro won with slightly more than 50-percent of the vote. Even before the results were announced, Capriles’ campaign said it believed Maduro was trying to steal the election.
Now, Capriles is demanding a full recount, following the razor-thin loss.
