Juppé loyalists in Bordeaux caught in a bind

What do you do when your presidential candidate is under investigation for corruption? This is the question facing voters of the French right-wing Les Républicains party this year.

Their candidate, François Fillon, is being investigated for the misuse of public funds. There had been calls for Alain Juppé, the other candidate in the party’s primary, to step in as candidate, but he declined.

In Bordeaux, where Juppé has been mayor on and off since 1995, Les Républicains voters are caught in a bind: do they support their candidate, despite the corruption allegations, or look for an alternative in the centrist Emmanuel Macron?

In this report from Bordeaux, voters from the right and the centre weigh in.
