It's Angara-Angara in Aurora
October 05, 2012
Baler, Aurora -- The Angaras are fielding an Angara-Angara tandem in this province in the May 2013 elections, reminiscent of the 2007 polls.
This after the Laban ng Demokratikong Pilipino in the province supported outgoing Sen. Edgardo Angara as its standard-bearer for governor with his nephew, Rommel Rico Teh Angara, as his running mate.
Rommel -- son of the senator's younger brother, ex-Mayor Joselito -- was the 2007 running mate of outgoing Gov. Bellaflor Angara-Castillo. He lost to the senator's gubernatorial rival, incumbent Vice Gov. Gerardo Noveras.
His 2007 debacle, however, was blamed by their own supporters to his being a neophyte politician who did not spend much time in the campaign trail and who was reportedly junked by one of their then-trusted allies in favor of Noveras.
The decision to field an Angara-Angara team was finalized during the party's caucus held in Angara-Castillo's resident.
