Teodoro: Nograles not a loss, was never a firm supporter

CABANATUAN CITY, Philippines — As far as the Lakas-Kampi-CMD standard-bearer Gilbert Teodoro Jr. is concerned, House Speaker Prospero Nograles’ departure from the ruling party is not a loss to his presidential bid.

“It won’t affect my campaign because he has never aggressively supported me,” Teodoro told reporters, on Monday, as he met with local candidates and barangay (village) leaders for a dialogue here.

Flying from neighboring San Jose City by helicopter, Teodoro was met on Thursday by a multitude of barangay leaders and other local candidates who had gathered at the Nueva Ecija College gymnasium for a simple lunch and meeting with the entire Lakas-Kampi-CMD slate.
