Three years after the death of the former governor of the Province, José Manuel De la Sota, his daughter Natalia, current provincial legislator, published an emotional video on Twitter in which she sings the song by Pachecos, “El Último Vidalero”, with images of the last farewell to the Cordovan leader, together with his relatives and at different times of his political career.
In the post she published, Natalia De la Sota expressed: “Three years ago and it feels like the first day. The consolation that comes is the memory and love of the people of Cordoba, because, as the song says,” their cry is eternal “. Miss you”.
José Manuel De la Sota ceased to exist on September 15, 2018, when around 8 p.m., the Volvo truck that was driving on the highway when returning from Río Cuarto hit a Mercedes Benz truck from behind, causing his immediate death.
During that sad day, the former governor left behind a career that alternated successes and failures, but which placed him as an unavoidable political reference in the history of Córdoba and the country. One of his greatest successes was having managed to bring Peronism back to power in Córdoba in 1999, something that had not happened since 1973.
He was a pre-candidate for President of the Nation in 2015 and competed within the same space with Sergio Massa, who defeated him in that instance and headed the presidential formula that later ended up defeated in December. De la Sota would once again insist on the idea of another presidential candidacy with a view to the 2019 elections, for which he had begun talks with Kirchnerism and the rest of Peronism, but the fatal sinister truncated that last attempt.
