Elections for governor of Sonora

On 16 February 2015 the PRI ratified Pavlovich as party candidate for governor of Sonora, at a convention of delegates where the secretary of the CEN of the PRI, Ivonne Ortega Pacheco, took protest. The nomination was supported with proof majority issued by the Commission of the CDE of the PRI Internal Processes at the hands of Ricardo García Sánchez, before the coordinator of the Parliamentary Faction of the PRI in Congress, Manlio Fabio Beltrones.

In the campaign prior to the election leaks were heard in which Pavlovich could be heard asking for favors in exchange for money from entrepreneurs in Sonora for their efforts. During the campaign, she was accused of "misuse of functions, conflict of interest and influence peddling." [2]
