Poe, Escudero return to Albay armed with Salceda’s support
LEGAZPI, Albay — Senators Grace Poe and Francis “Chiz” arrived here on Thursday to campaign again after getting the support of five of six governors in the vote-rich Bicol region.
Poe and Escudero, who are running for president and vice president, respectively, arrived at the airport around lunch time.
From the airport, the tandem will hold a motorcade from Libon to Legazpi City where they will hold a rally in the afternoon.
Their visit to the province came days after they received the endorsements of Albay Governor Joey Salceda, Camarines Sur Gov. Miguel Luis Villafuerte, Camarines Norte Gov. Edgardo Tallado, Masbate Gov. Rizalina Seachon-Lanete, and Catanduanes Gov. Cely Wong.
While backing Escudero’s vice presidential bid, Sorsogon Governor Raul Lee picked Vice President Jejomar Binay over Poe for president. IDL/rga
