Re-electionist Senator Francis “Chiz” Escudero was feeling a little bit sentimental during Team PNoy’s miting de avance at the Amoranto Stadium in Quezon City on Friday evening.
 
In his speech before thousand of administration supporters, Escudero recalled all the issues hurled at him in the duration of the campaign period.
 
“Marami silang ibinato sa akin. Tinawag nila akong lasengero, babaero, bakla at lahat lahat na. Lahat na ng paratang naibato sa akin, pero isa lang ang aaminin ko: inlababo,” Escudero said, pertaining to a Pinoy slang of being in love.
 
Escudero issued the statement weeks after the feud between him and the parents of his girlfriend, Heart Evangelista, died down.
 
It could be recalled that the Ongpaucos, Evangelista’s parents, went public with their disapproval of Escudero, whom they find rude and arrogant.
 
But Escudero seemed bent in standing by his lady love, supporting his girlfriend in her decision to pose sexy in a magazine cover.
 
But he clarified his campaign team has nothing to do with the project to benefit his ranking in the senatorial race.
 
“Wala kaming kinalaman roon. It was decided by Esquire editors three months ago,” Escudero said.
 
In this month’s issue of Esquire magazine, Evangelista was wearing in skimpy white top with a bold font saying VOTE.

The magazine came out a few weeks after Escudero started sliding down the senatorial survey, losing his 2nd-place ranking in both Social Weather Stations (SWS) and Pulse Asia.
