And Leni Robredo defeated Mrs. Villafuerte.
You can see how worse our situation is. The son of the former President who got a new congressional district created for his own. The Villafuerte clan who goes against each other. The Fuentebella's who have been in power since early 1900's yet their district remains the poorest, it's no wonder Aga Mulach is winning there.
i think the Alfelors are also in trouble of losing their grip on power on their side of the province.
well anyway, in Laguna, where i came from, E.R. Ejercito is well on his way towards a second term in office after defeating Rep. Egay San Luis in the gubernatorial race. the third district, which is Laguna's poorest and least developed area, has starlet Angelica Jones re-elected to another term as provincial board member while former ABS-CBN reporter Sol Aragones defeated incumbent Rep. Ivy Arago in the congressional race. re-electionist Rep. Dan Fernandez of the first district won easily.
in Laguna, showbiz reigns supreme.
in my other province, Batangas, the tandem of Gov. Vilma Santos and Vice Gov. Mark Leviste won easily against, yes, token opponents. Christopher de Leon lost badly in the congressional race in the second district.
