ILOILO, Philippines — Senator Grace Poe, who is running for president in May, returned here on Tuesday with her adoptive mother, veteran actress Susan Roces.
Poe is in the province, her known birth place, to campaign along with her running mate, Senator Francis “Chiz” Escudero, and some of their senatorial bets in team dubbed as “Partido Galing at Puso.”
Her mom will join them in the sortie starting with a tour at the La Paz Market scheduled at 7:30 a.m.
