MANILA, Philippines — Ormoc City Rep. Lucy Torres-Gomez and her husband,  Mayor Richard Gomez on Saturday endorsed the tandem of former Sen. Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. and Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio.

“Here is a man who is a poster boy for unity. He offers unity, healing moving forward,” said Torres-Gomez as she introduced Marcos Jr., during the campaign rally.

“We always say that it is an act of God, the presidency is destiny. And if it is in God’s will for this man to be our next President, I know that he will be the best that we ever have in this country,” she added.

Mayor Gomez, for his part, introduced Marcos Jr. constituents as the country’s “next president.”

This endorsement came following the endorsement of officials in Southern Leyte and Samar provinces.

Sen. Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa, who represented Duterte-Carpio during the same rally said the Davao City mayor will work and cooperate with Marcos Jr, should they emerge victorious.

Other local officials who attended the campaign rally were Ormoc Vice Mayor Toto Locsin, Merida Mayor Lando Villacencio, Matag-ob Mayor Mike Danguillas, former Palumpon Mayor Georgina Arevalo, former Isabel Vice Mayor TJ Alcantara, Kanganga Mayor Matt Torres, Albuera Mayor Sixto dela Victoria, and provincial board members Ninoy Arevalo and Vince Rama.
