DescriptionArgentina’s pro-business President Mauricio Macri suffered a crushing setback in a primary election on Sunday, indicating that he may lose re-election in October’s election and see his market overhauls unraveled by his leftist rivals.

In a nationwide primary, Mr. Macri received 32% support versus 47% for his opponent, Alberto Fernandez, with more than 80% of the ballots counted, the government said. Mr. Fernandez is a member of the powerful Peronist movement whose vice presidential running mate is ex-President Cristina Kirchner, the firebrand nationalist. Many Argentines believe Mrs. Kirchner is calling the shots for the opposition.
