Supporters of presidential candidate Fabricio Alvarado with the National Restoration party gather prior a live, televised debate ahead of the presidential election in San Jose, Costa Rica, Thursday, Feb. 1, 2018. An international court ruling saying Costa Rica should allow same-sex marriage has upended the Central American nation's presidential race, turning evangelical candidate Alvarado, who opposes it, from an also-ran with just 2 percent in the polls into the leading contender in Sunday's vote.
