The FN came first with between 27.2 and 30.3 percent of the vote nationwide and topped the list in at least six of 13 regions, according to early estimates. FN leader Marine Le Pen and her 25-year-old niece Marion Marechal-Le Pen broke the 40-percent mark in their respective regions, shattering previous records for the party as they tapped into voter anger over a stagnant economy and security fears linked to Europe’s refugee crisis.
