Angela Merkel Campaigns For CDU In Hesse State Elections In Dieburg

German Chancellor and leader of the German Christian Democrats (CDU) Angela Merkel, lead local CDU candidate Volker Bouffier (2-L) and his wife Ursula Bouffier (R) and Lutz Koehler (L) attend a CDU Hesse state election rally on October 23, 2018 in Dieburg, Germany. Hesse is scheduled to hold state elections on October 28 and so far polls indicate the German Christian Democrats (CDU), the party of Chancellor Angela Merkel, and the German Social Democrats (SPD) will fair poorly, while both the German Greens Party and the right-wing Alternative for Germany (AfD) can expect strong gains.
