MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Incumbent Senator Bam Aquino has some unsolicited advice for his cousin Kris: Just stick to show business!
Bam’s advice came on the heels of the recent Pulse Asia survey showing him dropping from No. 12 to No. 20 in the list of possible 2019 Senatorial candidates. He was closely followed by Kris.
Political analysts say that if both Aquinos will run in 2019, they will split the Opposition vote.
”This is not the time to engage in cousin rivalry,” the Senator said. “One of us has to go, and it has to be Kris. I have the experience and credentials, she doesn’t. She should just come out of retirement and start hosting her own TV shows again.”
