state congressman – deputado estadual
Who did you vote for state congressman in this election? Many people in SP voted for Tiririca, the comedian.
The state congressman is what we call n Brazil deputado estadual.
There is the word deputy in English, but it’s not used as deputado. It means delegado. It has other meanings that I am not going to talk about here.
Tiririca got 1 million 300 thousand votes for state congressman in the 2010 election. (Tiririca recebeu 1 milhão e 300 mil votos para deputado estadual nas eleições de 2010)
* I’d like to thank Blood Pearls blog for teaching me this term.
