MANILA, Philippines - Sen. Edgardo Angara, the longest-serving senator in the post-EDSA Senate, has reportedly decided to run for governor of Aurora province in next year's elections.
Reliable sources told The STAR that Angara has finalized his decision to seek the gubernatorial post and has even informed his close friends and allies, including former President Joseph Estrada.
Angara served as agriculture secretary during Estrada's term.
Speculations are rife Angara will declare his gubernatorial bid before the deadline for the filing of certificates of candidacy for local and national officials in October.
