PUERTO PRINCESA CITY: Television host Kris Aquino will be joining the campaign sorties of Liberal Party (LP) standard bearer Manuel “Mar” Roxas 2nd and his running mate, Rep. Leni Robredo.
Kris made a pitch for the Roxas-Robredo tandem in Bulacan last week.
“Firstly, I am very thankful to Ms. Kris Aquino. Malaking bagay po ito, nakakataba ng puso, nakakapagtibay ng tuhod, at natutuwa po kami na makakasama siya sa kampanya [This is a big thing for us, it is heartwarming, it strengthens our knees. We are really glad she will be with us in the campaign],” Roxas told reporters.
The President’s sister is one of the top endorsers in the country. She is also one of the top tax payers in 2013, 2014, and 2015 with at least P40 million of income taxes paid.
“I would not know if she will be there for 23 days, but I know she will be there a lot of times,” Roxas said. “This endorsement is crucial in continuing the good things that her brother started, and she knows that such task will be completed by myself and Vice Presidential candidate Leni Robredo.”
Kris has appeared in a television campaign advertisement endorsing Robredo, paying for its production as well as airtime fees which cost at least P500,000 per 30 seconds.
