Since 1929, the State of Mexico was governed by PRI militants—since its founding with the National Revolutionary Party (PNR) and the Party of the Mexican Revolution (PRM)—which is why the triumph of Delfina Gómez broke with a tradition of almost 100 years of governments headed by men from the tricolor.

The first governor from said political group was Filiberto Gómez, while the first from the PRM was Alfredo Zárate Albarrán; while the first already with the PRI was Alfredo del Mazo Vélez, coincidentally the grandfather of Alfredo del Mazo Maza, the last PRI governor.

The defeat of the Institutional Revolutionary in the Mexican territory meant a hard blow for the party, because it was not only the loss of territory, but also the blow to the citizens of not being able to retain the bastion that gave them power for decades.
