Still Gaining Momentum


Note: there are a number of administration blog and forum assassins out there but this entry is for all hard-working volunteers of Genuine Opposition senatorial bet Francis Escudero especially members of Team Chiz.

The trust rating surveys...the consistent magic five ranking...not to mention the twins...Sorsogon representative Francis Escudero is riding high on a tidal wave of momentum going to the last stretch of the campaign.

Holy Mock-arel
In a mock polls conducted by the Parish Pastoral Council for Responsible Voting last April 9, Escudero got the most votes among priests in the Diocese of Bacolod. Just like the surveys, the result was dominated by Genuine Opposition bets. Equally stunning is the strong showing of the three Kapatiran bets.

Another Endorsement
Rumors are buzzing that the powerful Iglesia ni Kristo has already endorsed two senatorial candidates, Mike Defensor and Francis Escudero. Though I am not quite familiar with Pastor Apollo C. Quiboloy - Sun Star Davao has described him as one of the most popular religious leaders whom politicians court come election time. He decided to reveal his magic 12 on the 25th of April - his birthday. This should make the volunteers of Chiz smile, 'Moreover, Quiboloy told Sun.Star Davao that almost all of the senatorial candidates, administration, opposition, and independents, have sought his endorsement. But aside from Pangilinan, it was only senatorial aspirant Francis Escudero whom the pastor mentioned as a good choice.'

Tony Awards
Please correct me if I'm wrong, is Antonio Lopez of Biz News Asia and Tony Lopez of Manila Times - one and the same? Well I thought that he would be the last person - well - third person (after Alex Magno and Domini Torevillas) to notice surge in Escudero's campaign. But...surprise...surprise...look at his column. Among the congressmen running for senators, lawyer Chiz Escudero is making the best showing. He improved his rating from 23.2 percent (6.96 million votes) in January to 45.3 percent (13.59 million votes) in April, a gain of 22.1 percentage points, or 6.75 million votes. The affable Bicolano with a pedestrian sartorial taste climbed from a losing position, at No. 13, in January to No. 3, a dizzying 10-rung pole vault.

Much credit to his amazing campaign should go to Chiz Escudero. But I guess all volunteers (Team Chiz members included) should take deserving bow. Congratulations and keep up the good work. Sugod!

Shall we break out the champagne and toast to Chiz's victory? Only cheating could derail his ascension to the senate. Kudos to Team Chiz for a job well done.

Joanna, I'm sure you must be one lucky 'demolition woman'.

You would have probably realized at this point that the honorable representative of Sorsogon may end up in the juicy top spot.

A big congratulatory handshake to you, kido! (Say Chiz!)

As of now Tuesday evening, exit-polls and tally-to-date should give comfort to Legarda, Escudero, Lacson, Aquino and Villar.
