Poe, Chiz to name Senate slate today

The Team ‘Galing at Puso’ of independent presidential candidate Senator Grace Poe-Llamanzares will present 12 senatorial candidates today at Club Filipino.

Former Liberal Party ally and Cebu 5th District Representative Ace Durano, who would be the Team GP’s campaign manager for the senatorial slate, said all the 12 senatorial bets of the team are highly accomplished individuals and represent the broad sectors of society.

And while the possible personalities included in their senatorial line-up have already made news, one or two of their bets are “surprise” candidates; two are guest candidates from other political parties.

“Yes, we’re ready to present 12. As of this afternoon, all of them confirmed (they will be present at Club Filipino),” Durano said in a phone interview.

Those who are rumored to be part of the Team GP are reelectionist senators Vicente “Tito” Sotto III, Ralph Recto, former senators Richard “Dick” Gordon, Juan Miguel “Migz” Zubiri, Valenzuela Rep. Sherwin “Win” Gatchalian, Rep. Neri Javier Colmenares, lawyer Lorna Kapunan, Pasig City Rep. Roman Romulo, former PNP-CIDG chief and ACT-CIS party-list Rep. Samuel Pagdilao, Manila city vice mayor Francisco Domagoso or “Isko” Moreno, Susan “Toots” Ople, and actor Edu Manzano.
