NAGA CITY – After a failed attempt during the 2016 elections, Josefina Tallado, wife of Camarines Norte governor Edgar Tallado, finally won a seat in Congress in this year’s midterm election.

Around 7 p.m. Wednesday, the Commission on Elections (Comelec) in Camarines Norte proclaimed Josefina as the new representative for the 1st district of the province.
