Rafael Moreno Valle Rosas (30 June 1968 – 24 December 2018) was a Mexican politician affiliated with the National Action Party (PAN). He was the Governor of Puebla from February 2011 through January 2017.[2]

Moreno Valle also served as a Deputy of the LIX Legislature of the Mexican Congress representing Puebla and as a Senator in the LX, LXI and LXIV Legislatures.[3]

Moreno Valle was the grandson of Rafael Moreno Valle, a doctor and politician who also served as the Governor of Puebla from 1969 to 1972.[4] He was also the spouse of Martha Erika Alonso Hidalgo, the first woman Governor of Puebla.

Death[edit]

On 24 December 2018, a helicopter carrying Moreno Valle, his wife Martha Erika Alonso Hidalgo, and other PAN politicians from the state crashed in a field near the town of Santa María Coronango,[5] half an hour from the city of Puebla, killing both. In a tweet, President Andrés Manuel López Obrador indicated that Alonso and Moreno Valle were on the downed aircraft.[6] At the time, Moreno Valle was a proportional representation senator.[3]
