Senator Grace Poe has turned down overtures of Interior Secretary Mar Roxas to be his running mate in the 2016 election.
Choose others, Poe told Roxas, the standard bearer of the ruling Liberal Party (LP), he Roxas visited her in her home on Sunday, August 16, to make the offer.
Don’t wait for me. There are many others out there, was the message that Poe conveyed to Mar,
in the meeting in her San Juan residence.
President Benigno Aquino and the LP is salivating at Poe running with Mar, who has been fairing badly in the surveys.
The LP believes Poe’s popularity could boost Roxas’ ratings.
Roxas was third in the latest Social Weather Stations survey (SWS), behind Binay and Poe. He was in fourth place inn the latest Pulse Asia survey, behind Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte, Binay and Poe.
