Campaign Convos Podcast: Can Grace Poe keep her lead?
MANILA, Philippines – Weeks before elections, independent candidate Grace Poe has managed to stay at the top of the 2019 senatorial race, according to surveys.
But will she emerge as the country's number one senator on May 13? Her hold on the top spot is being challenged by pro-administration candidate Cynthia Villar and, some say, even by Duterte's longtime aide Bong Go.
Rappler reporter Aika Rey tells us what it's like to cover Poe, who once challenged Rodrigo Duterte for the presidency, on the campaign trail.
