Poe’s senatorial slate is composed of Colmenares, Senators Vicente “Tito” Sotto III and Ralph Recto, former Senators Richard Gordon and Juan Miguel Zubiri, migrant workers advocate Susan Ople, Manila Vice Mayor Isko Moreno, Pasig Rep. Roman Romulo, ACT-CIS Rep. Samuel Pagdilao, Valenzuela Rep. Sherwin Gatchalian, actor and TV host Edu Manzano, and lawyer Lorna Kapunan.
Five in Poe’s senatorial ticket, however, are shared or guest candidates, like Recto, who is part of the administration’s team, while Sotto, Gordon, Zubiri and Ople are also running under the slate of Vice President Jejomar Binay.
The remaining seven bets are exclusive to Poe’s team. CDG
