              FILE - A woman holds a poster depicting Brazil's Justice Minister Sergio Moro behind bars, wearing a prison uniform, during a protest in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Thursday, Oct. 3, 2019. When Moro resigned to enter politics, many in Brazil believed the anti-corruption crusader who jailed a popular former president could someday occupy the nation’s most powerful office. But on the eve of Brazil’s Oct. 2 general election, the once-revered magistrate was fighting what polls showed was a losing battle for a Senate seat. (AP Photo/Silvia Izquierdo)
            
              Brazil's former President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva shakes hands with a supporter as he campaigns a day ahead of the country's general election, in Sao Paulo, Brazil, Saturday, Oct. 1, 2022. Polls show da Silva with a commanding lead that could possibly even give him a first-round victory. But even if that doesn’t happen, the vote itself marks an improbable political comeback for da Silva, a 76-year-old former metalworker who rose from poverty to the presidency — then just four years ago was jailed as part of a massive corruption investigation that targeted his Workers’ Party and upended Brazilian politics.
