Gov. Gwen Garcia this morning announced before hundreds gathered at the CICC for the 2nd Student Marketing Convention that she is no longer running for senator and will instead run for Congress in Cebu’s third district to give Cebu her undivided attention this coming election. “As my most well-meaning friends and allies have pointed out, the good fight is here in the province I have pledged to serve well…And so after careful deliberation and consultation, I have decided to discontinue my bid for a seat in the Philippine Senate…At this crucial time, the task of sustaining Cebu’s unprecedented gains and progress as the number one province in the entire country requires that I be here, at all times, if necessary,” the governor said in a prepared statement. She will be running in the district that her brother, Rep. Pablo John Garcia, will be leaving next year. Pablo John is running for governor.
