Albay Gov. Joey Salceda dumps a fellow Bicolano to support the vice presidential bid of another in Sen. Francis “Chiz” Escudero.
Salceda, a member of the administration’s Liberal Party (LP), had endorsed the presidential bid of former Interior Secretary Manuel “Mar” Roxas II and his running mate Camarines Sur Rep. Ma. Leonor “Leni” Robredo.
However, Salceda announced that he was withdrawing his support for Roxas to back Sen. Grace Poe.
Escudero said: “I am eternally grateful for his endorsement of my candidacy as well as that of Grace.”
