SORSOGON CITY, Philippines – Sorsogon Governor Francis “Chiz” Escudero, who is seeking a Senate comeback, cast his vote at Buhatan Integrated School in Barangay Buhatan, Sorsogon City on Monday morning, May 9.
He was with his wife, actress Heart Evangelista.
Sorsogon province has 542, 245 registered voters.
Escudero, who had served in the Senate from 2007 to 2019, has been faring well in pre-election surveys on senatorial aspirants, consistently landing among the higher spots in the so-called Magic 12.
Speaking with Rappler after voting, Escudero denied reports here that he circulated flyers with the names of presidential candidate Ferdinand Marcos Jr. and running mate Sara Duterte.
“Sample ballots are a main cause of conflict during elections,” Escudero said in Filipino.
“Our position on that issue is clear, especially because all our local candidates endorsed the candidacy of Vice President Leni Robredo,” he added. – Rappler.com
