There are now two Graces in the Senate after their victory in the midterm elections.

Senator Panfilo Lacson has hailed fellow independent Senators Grace Poe and Nancy Binay for winning a second six-year term, saying he prefers to call them “grace and grace.”

“Grace and Nancy hugging each other after knowing they both stood their ground as independents during the proclamation group picture-taking made me proud to be their colleague in the Senate. I will now call them grace and grace,” he tweeted.

Poe placed second in the May senatorial elections with more than 22 million votes.

Binay, on the other head, garnered more than 14.5 million votes to secure the 12th and last spot in the winner’s circle.
