Mexico's PRI party to win key state vote: exit poll

TOLUCA, Mexico (Reuters) - Mexico's Institutional Revolutionary Party, or PRI, is set to win the race for governor in the populous State of Mexico, a Milenio TV exit poll showed on Sunday.

The likely victory for PRI candidate Eruviel Avila will strengthen the main opposition party heading into the 2012 presidential elections. Official results will be announced later.
