MANILA, Philippines – Lakas-Kampi-CMD standard-bearer Gilbert Teodoro Jr. would pull a “come from behind victory” with the resurgence of support for him three weeks before the May 10 elections, party officials said yesterday.
Speaking to reporters, Ray Roquero, Lakas-Kampi secretary-general, said attacks against Teodoro, who continues to place fourth in surveys, have backfired.
“There is such a thing as a come from behind victory, and we can see the campaign being galvanized, the black propaganda being waged against us by the opposition seemed to have backfired and favored us,” he said.

Puno’s forecast: Gibo will do much better on May 10
MANILA, Philippines – Interior Secretary Ronaldo Puno said Wednesday that he still believes the Lakas-Kampi-CMD can deliver victory for administration presidential candidate Gilberto “Gibo” Teodoro.
“My fearless forecast, [Gibo] will do much, much better than people think,” Puno told radio dzMM when asked what he thinks about Teodoro’s chances of winning the presidential race amid his low survey ratings.
He said that the Lakas-Kampi-CMD’s organizational prowess, despite defections by even the most loyal party members, would bring Teodoro the much-needed push for his presidential aspiration.
