Duterte vows to campaign for Loren
By Xave Gregorio
President Rodrigo Duterte reportedly promised that he would campaign for Senator Loren Legarda when she runs for Antique representative in the May 2019 polls.
Senate Majority Leader Juan Miguel “Migz” Zubiri revealed Tuesday (October 9) that this happened during the senators’ emergency meeting with Duterte in the Malacañang last night to discuss about the coco levy fund bill.
“Natuwa siya kasi katabi niya si Senator Loren. Tuwang-tuwa siya na may katabi siyang magandang senador at nangako siya kay Senator Loren na ikakampaniya siya sa Antique,” Zubiri said.
Legarda would step down from the Senate next year as she hits the limit of two consecutive terms. She was rumored to be appointed as Social Welfare secretary, but has decided to instead run as representative of her hometown Antique.
