(CNN) -- Miranda State Gov. Henrique Capriles said Saturday that he "very thankful" to be nominated as the main opposition candidate in Venezuela's April 14 presidential election. Capriles -- who lost to Hugo Chavez, the South American nation's longtime president who died earlier this week, in last fall's presidential election -- said he will speak in coming hours about whether he'll accept the nomination.
