SIGNIFICANCE: The launch coincided with a series of scandals that have  undermined the government's image among its middle-class constituency.
ANALYSIS: The launch of the presidential campaign of Senator Cristina  Fernandez de Kirchner and her running mate, Mendoza Governor Julio  Cobos (expelled from the opposition Radical party after joining the  government ticket), has been marred by a new scandal that threatens to touch  both members of the government and its closest allies:

• Antonini, who has apparently entered Argentina twelve times this  year, arrived two days before a visit by Venezuelan President Hugo  Chavez; the case was not reported until several days later.
• Uberti, known as an important nexus between Buenos Aires and  Caracas, in particular for Planning Minister Julio de Vido (who had  earlier pressed for him to be named ambassador to Caracas), was  sacked on August 9
