Campaign Convos: The power, and limits, of endorsements
'X endorses Y' is a common headline during election season. Join Rappler campaign reporters talk about recent surprising political endorsements.

MANILA, Philippines – Former Duterte ally Pantaleon Alvarez endorses Leni. Duterte party PDP-Laban goes for Marcos Jr. Mocha Uson backs Isko. These string of unexpected endorsements have got us all pulling our hair.

Join Rappler campaign reporters discuss and dissect these latest developments in episode 8 of Campaign Convos, weekly kudahan about events shaping the 2022 election season.

What do these alliances and realignments mean for the presidential candidates and who will win in May? How impactful are endorsements in an election where the front-runner has garnered as much as 60% of voter preference, based on some surveys?
