GENERAL SANTOS CITY, May 2 – Aside from fulfilling a birthday promise, popular television host Kris Aquino has other reason for joining Team PNoy reelectionist senator Francis Escudero in a campaign sortie here on Thursday.

The presidential sister revealed in a press conference that Escudero asked her to look for a special gift for the lawmaker’s showbiz girlfriend Heart Evangelista.

”He is asking me to look for a gift for Heart. I already called up my friend and I’m the procurer of the gift for their first anniversary (as sweetheart)…Oh you’re blushing,” Aquino told the media while looking at Escudero.

Aquino said she is happy to be back in General Santos City to campaign not only to personally campaign for Escudero but for former Movies and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB) chairperson Grace Poe.

”Actually, when Chiz celebrated her birthday last Oct. 10, I told him my gift was on the last stretch of the campaign, bring me anywhere you want. Then I did not realize I told him my whole day is for you. We start the day at 3:30 a.m. and it will end midnight tonight,” Aquino said.

Upon arrival Thursday on board a private plane, Escudero’s entourage joined a motorcade along major thoroughfares of this bustling city before attending a local radio interview and later joined Mayor Darlene Antonino-Custodio in a press conference.

Aside from General Santos City, Escudero and Poe together with Kris Aquino barnstormed Davao City, joining a motorcade and attending radio interviews before meeting with Mayor Inday Sara Duterte.

Escudero said he picked the cities of General and Davao as venue of his Mindanao leg campaign “because it represents the situation of this part of our country.”

”Aside from that, GenSan and Davao are the media center of Mindanao,” he said.

Escudero and Poe expressed appreciation to Kris Aquino for endorsing other Team PNoy candidates Alan Cayetano, Sonny Angara and Bam Aquino.

”We would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude because Kris is top endorser of various products on television,” Escudero said.

”She is very popular and a lot of people consider her as their idol. She is really a big help in our bid to win the elections,” Poe, for her part, said.

Despite endorsement of Aquino and other personalities including her mother Susan Roces, Poe said there is no reason for them to be complacent.

”Even our good showing in survey is not assurance because it’s only a guide for us to work harder,” Poe said.

Escudero and Poe occupied the second and third spots, respectively, of the latest Pulse Asia survey. (PNA)
