Broadcaster and senatorial aspirant Raffy Tulfo on Monday said the camp of Sen. Manny Pacquiao asked him to run as the lawmaker’s vice president in the 2022 elections.
“Sinabi ko na napakabilis naman ata agad yun bang paglundag, vice president agad. Sabi ko, isa pa, hindi ko puwedeng banggain si Pangulong Duterte dahil siya’y kaibigan ko. Isa pa, nandiyan si Sen. Tito Sotto, di ko rin puwedeng banggain. Pumayag naman sila,” he said.
Pacquiao made the offer to Tulfo even as he has already tapped Deputy Speaker and Buhay Party-list Rep. Lito Atienza to be his running mate.
Tulfo, who is gunning for a Senate seat, is already included in Pacquiao’s slate along with several senators up for reelection and former lawmakers seeking a comeback. The lineup also includes a labor leader and human rights lawyer.
