Quotes

At least, the man himself is realistic and down-to-earth. Despite the purported Visayan-wide endorsement, Albee can still manage to say: "It is nice to hear something [positive] because it reassures that all the things that I have done in my district are being supported by other congressmen in the country. However, there are a lot of parameters to be ironed out and a lot of conditions to be studied carefully before we can say that we are ready to move up."
"We will support Congressman Benitez if he decides to run. We are solidly behind him. There are 34 congressmen who are members of the Visayan bloc. In our respective districts, we will make sure to make him win. He needs a sizable chunk of votes to win in the Senate. As soon as he decides we will be solidly behind him,” Treñas said."
"Our police chiefs have a standing order to campaign hard against all forms of illegal activities, especially illegal gambling" he added. (TDE)
"If there's no person that has measles rubella, we can stop the spread of the disease" Ubial said in a press conference in Bacolod City on Tuesday
