He was not mistaken in thanking the voters of the New Popular Front on Sunday evening. Re-elected as deputy of the second constituency on July 7 with 59.99% of the votes cast, Daniel Labaronne was able to count on the “republican arc” born from the withdrawal of Christelle Gobert, the NFP candidate in the first round, to largely beat his opponent from the National Rally, Corine Fougeron, who came in first a week earlier.

The RN resists in Castelrenaudais

On June 30, Corine Fougeron came out on top with a 1,595-vote lead over Daniel Labaronne, who won the first round in 43 of the 59 municipalities in the constituency. On July 7, the gap increased to 12,437 votes in favor of the incumbent, who won 46 municipalities against 12 for his opponent, with Dame-Marie-les-Bois placing the two candidates in a tie (87 votes each).

With an equivalent turnout (65,669 voters in the first round, 65,576 in the second), it was therefore the transfer of votes from the NFP (14,891 voters had cast their vote for Christelle Gobert in the first round) which clearly allowed Daniel Labaronne to reverse the trend.

Corine Fougeron only held on in some “small” towns, particularly in Castelrenaudais. The National Rally candidate achieved her best score in Saunay, with 58.05% of the vote. She also came ahead of her opponent in Autrèche (52.31%), Auzouer-en-Touraine (51.17%), Les Hermites (51.11%) and La Ferrière (50.92%). In Château-Renault, she lost by only 74 votes (991 against 917) out of 2,030 ballots counted.

In the Val d’Amboise, Marine Le Pen’s party confirmed its good scores in Montreuil-en-Touraine (54.62% for Corine Fougeron against 45.48% for Daniel Labaronne) and Neuillé-le-Lierre (54.32% against 45.68%). In the Blérois, the RN candidate won in Luzillé (52.31%) and in Sublaines (54.21%).

Peaks at 70% for the outgoing

Opposite, Daniel Labaronne crossed the 70% mark of the votes cast in Rochecorbon (70.84%) and Vouvray (70.30%), a town whose mayor, Brigitte Pineau, was his substitute. The former mayor of Bléré also achieved very good scores in the main towns of the second constituency: 65.90% in Montlouis-sur-Loire, 59.01% in Bléré and 63.50% in Amboise.

Beaten in five of the ten polling stations in Amboise on June 30, the incumbent corrected his aim on July 7. He won everywhere, reaching 70.14% at the village hall in the city center and 68.37% at the Malraux college in the school district. It was at the Jules-Ferry school in Bout-des-Ponts that he achieved his lowest score, with 50.94% of the votes cast. It was in this polling station number four that Corine Fougeron had most widely outstripped him in the first round in Amboise (43.3%).
