LA VICTORIA, Venezuela (AP) — The presidential candidate of Venezuela’s chief opposition coalition has sought to cultivate a mood of hope and possibility in a large rally that marked the start of a campaign he admittedly never imagined leading. Edmundo González Urrutia, the former diplomat chosen by the coalition to replace the fiery leader María Corina Machado, invited thousands of supporters to gather in the city of La Victoria, his hometown.
