WI: Vargas won in the 1930 election as government representant

To the Brazilian Election of 1930, the two representants of the “Coffee and Milk Republic”, São Paulo (Coffee) and Minas Gerais (Milk) had a discussion about who would be the government candidate to the election, with São Paulo supporting his representant Julio Prestes (breaking the tradition of power alternation) and Minas Gerais supporting his governor Antonio Carlo de Andrada. In the end the São Paulo’s representative was launched and elected, with Minas Gerais breaking the “alliance” and supporting the Rio Grande’s candidate Getúlio Vargas, who lost but made the revolution in the same year and became president until 1945 (and after 1950 until 1953).

What is unknown from the majority of the people (even in Brazil) is that, during the discussion to choose the government candidate, the Minas Gerais side proposed, as a compromise candidate, the name of nothing less than Getúlio Vargas. What if Vargas had become president not in a revolution, but elected as the government candidate? How would this affect Brazil politically and could this keep the “Coffee and Milk Republic” alive for a longer period?
