RIO DE JANEIRO — Jair Bolsonaro once called for the murder of a sitting president. As a legislator, he openly pined for the days of military dictatorship. Isolated by his extreme views, he struggled for years to find political parties willing to let him in.
"Brazilians Go to the Polls with Far-Right Jair Bolsonaro as Front-Runner" is from the October 28, 2018 World section of The Washington Post. It was written by Anthony Faiola and Marina Lopes and narrated by Sam Scholl.
