Duterte endorses Villar as senator

Sen. Cynthia Villar's bid for reelection was endorsed by no less than President Rodrigo Duterte during the campaign kickoff of Partido Demokratiko Pilipino- Lakas ng Bayan (PDP-LABAN) in San Jose del Monte, Bulacan.

Villar was endorsed as a guest candidate of PDP-LABAN along with fellow Nacionalista Party members Ilocos Norte Gov. Imee Marcos, and former senator now Taguig Rep. Pia Cayetano.

"I am both humbled and honored to have the endorsement of a very popular president," Villar said.

Duterte cited Villar's long years in public service and her character as a dedicated public servant.

"I look forward to continue working with him in instituting reforms, especially in making the agriculture sector profitable and competitive for our farmers and fisherfolks," Villar said.

Villar, chairperson of the Committee on Agriculture and Food and Committee on Environment and Natural Resources, is seeking her second term as senator on a platform of providing sustainable livelihood opportunities to Filipinos as Misis HanepBuhay and helping farmers and fisherfolks to produce enough food at cheaper cost for Filipinos.
