    Laurel, Batangas: Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos did not attend the debate of vice presidential candidates arranged by ABS-CBN network on Sunday afternoon because of previous commitments.

    Yesterday was also his 23rd wedding anniversary, and he had dinner with his wife Liza and three children.

    “We only had one official VP debate arranged by the Commission on Elections. And this event here in Laurel was scheduled way before we received invitation from the ABS-CBN debate organizers,” Marcos explained.

    Marcos brought his Unity caravan to Laurel town in Batangas, where the complete slate of the Nationalist People’s Coalition (NPC) threw its support behind the Ilocano lawmaker.

    He attended a gathering of supporters of mayoralty candidate Roderick Natanauan, his vice mayoralty bet Cris Lamano, and eight-council slate composed of Antonio Bilog Jr., Mark Ian Dalisay, Michael Degrano, Nellie Gem Encarnacion, Joel Palo, Froilan Sarmiento, and Florencio Villanueva.

    Marcos said the administration is going all out to drum up support for Camarines Sur Rep. Leni Robredo, the vice presidential bet of the Liberal Party.

    “The full administration machinery is working for her. Almost all the advertisements being aired are hers. They are doing everything,” he said.

    The senator said he will devote the remaining three weeks of the campaign period to reaching more voters.

    Last Friday, Marcos and Sen. Miriam Santiago were in Baguio City, where they reached out to thousands of students of Saint Louis University.

    “You will see us together more often these last weeks of the campaign period,” Marcos said.

      Bongbong Marcos is the only candidate who does not resort to mudslinging and it is the ultimate mark of a true statesman and a real gentleman. Let us not labor ourselves on the past. The Aquino’s truth is a political propaganda sold to the public as truth when repeated consistently by a biased media outfit who will paint the Aquino’s as saints and made to look like Jesus Christ . They are humans like us and not some kind of spiritual beings not capable of making mistakes. Judge not and you shall not be judged. Bongbong Marcos is the most qualified as the next vice-president of the Philippines. Sane and wise people will finally decide this May 9, 2016.

      Sana, manalo sila Miriam Santiago at BongBong Marcos, kasi ang ang pagpapalakad nang bayan natin ay hindi biro. Sana ay tulungan tayo nang Diyos.
