Supporters of Special Assistant to the President (SAP) Christopher Lawrence “Bong” Go officially launched on Wednesday a movement encouraging the loyal presidential assistant to run for a Senate seat in 2019. As this developed, Communications Secretary Martin Andanar clarified that the clamor for Go to run in the senatorial derby is not a form of early campaigning. Andanar said that the campaign, dubbed as “Ready, Set, Go!,” is not a launch of Go’s candidacy for the Senate but a campaign for him to join the senatorial race next year. ADVERTISEMENT“I think for me hindi siya maaga (It’s not early campaigning) because we are still convincing him to run. It’s not a launch for candidacy, it’s actually convincing SAP Bong Go to run for Senate,” Andanar said in an interview with reporters.
