Erap Endorses Pacquiao in His 2010 Congressional Run in Sarangani Province

19 June 2009

On Thursday, June 18, former Philippine President Joseph "Erap" Estrada endorsed Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao in his 2010 bid for the lone congressional district of Sarangani province.

Erap made the endorsement during a two-day "Lakbay Pasasalamat" trip to General Santos City upon the invitation of the reigning pound-for-pound king.

"Karangalan natin na bisitahin tayo rito at paunlakan yung imbitasyon natin ... galing sa ating minamahal na Pangulo ... ah ... Pangulong Erap."

In making the effort to secure former President Estrada's endorsement, Pacquiao is showing that he is leaving nothing to chance to win in his second congressional bid even if it means risking ruffling some feathers in MalacaƱang. 

Under the administration Lakas-CMD banner, Pacquiao made a run two years ago in 2007 for the congressional seat in South Cotabato but was soundly beaten by incumbent Representative Darlene Custodio who had Erap's support.
