Nograles drops Senate bid
DAVAO 1st District Rep. Karlo Nograles yesterday dropped his plan to run for Senate in the 2019 midterm elections.
The House appropriations panel chair and nephew of President Rodrigo Duterte said in a statement that he would instead support the senatorial bids of fellow Mindanaoans in the administration slate.
“I am grateful for the support of all the groups and individuals who encouraged me to run for a Senate seat in 2019,” the third-term congressman said.
However, after much introspection and after consulting members of my family, I believe that I would be able to better serve the Administration of
President Rodrigo Duterte by supporting the candidacies of fellow Mindanaoans who share my desire to bring development to the regions and uplift the welfare of our kapwa probinsyanos,” he added.
