Samuel García Career
With a progressive outlook, Garcia joined Rescatemos Nuevo León, an organization that permitted him to run for a local congressional seat via proportional representation. His salary would be donated, as he had promised during the campaign, to the Un solo San Pedro initiative.
After Pilar Lozano Mac Donald stepped down as head of the Citizen’s Movement party in the state of Nuevo León in 2017, he took over as interim leader. He held this role until August 2, 2019, when Agustín Basave Alanís was elected as coordinator.
He registered as the Citizen’s Movement party’s pre-candidate for the Mexican Senate in January 2018. Together with his partner Indira Kempis, he won the election on July 1.
On February 6, 2021, the Citizen’s Movement officially announced Samuel García as their candidate for Nuevo León governor. Given that he has presented himself as “a kind of political influencer,” the campaign has drawn criticism.
He made his intention to run for Movimiento Ciudadano president in 2024 known to the public on December 5, 2022.
In a 2016 video, he requests assistance from a citizen to investigate cases of corruption but objects to the remark that, upon being asked to keep his campaign pledges, “I am not your gato” (a pejorative slang for “servant”).
García Sepúlveda refuted INE’s misinformation about former local deputy candidate Alberto Abascal Uckles during a news conference on February 12, 2018, when Abascal criticized García about the allowances provided for his pre-campaign.
The Mexican newspaper El Universal revealed on May 30, 2018, that Garcia was related to Gilberto García Mena, also known as “El June,” who was a prominent figure in the Gulf Cartel.
He was charged in June 2020 with fabricating the transcripts attesting to his doctorate in tax law from ITAC University, a private university located in Monterrey.
Samuel García posted pictures of his honorable mention certificate and postgraduate degree on Instagram. However, a number of users subsequently brought attention to the irregularities in the signatures of the ITAC University rector on both documents and how one of them resembled the vice-rector’s signature from the same university.
In an attempt to defend himself, Samuel García released a video in which he stated that an unofficial document had caused the discrepancy, that he had finished his doctorate on schedule and in the proper format, and that the vice-rector, rather than the rector had signed the document because the latter was ill.
The local media Info7 then said that ITAC University had closed and that its buildings had been abandoned.
