MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles® ) – After weeks of speculation in the media and in political circles, Senator Chiz Escudero today officially declared that he was running for president of the Philippines in 2016.

Much of the speculation centered on Escudero and Senator Grace Poe.  Poe currently leads in national polls on the people’s choice to succeed NoyNoy Aquino.

Many expected Escudero and Poe to run in tandem, although there was deep division among political analysts on who would run for president or vice president. Escudero also put that speculation to rest by announcing his vice presidential runningmate, and it is not Poe.

It is current Vice President Jejomar Binay!

Watch Escudero’s announcement in this campaign video titled, ‘Ang Bise Presidente Ko’ (My Vice President).
