Kris thanks INC for endorsing Noynoy, Mar
On behalf of her family, celebrity Kris Aquino on Wednesday thanked the Iglesia ni Cristo leadership for endorsing the presidential bid of her brother, Senator Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino III.
In her official Twitter account, Kris expressed gratitude to INC leader Eduardo Manalo and the rest of the religious group's members for supporting Noynoy and his running mate, Senator Manuel "Mar" Roxas II. [See: Iglesia ni Cristo endorses Noynoy Aquino, Mar Roxas]
"Thank you to INC Executive Minister, Ka Eduardo Manalo and lahat ng kapatid namin sa Iglesia ni Cristo for choosing to support Noy and Mar. We are so grateful for this inspiring blessing," Kris tweeted.
Kris accompanied Noynoy in at least one of his meetings with Manalo prior to the INC's endorsement.
The actress, accompanied by celebrities including Agot Isidro and Mylene Dizon, is set to campaign in Nueva Ecija and Pampanga Wednesday for her brother. The day before, she campaigned in La Union and Baguio with actors Dingdong Dantes and Coco Martin.
The INC, which is known for voting as a bloc, is said to bring in at least a million votes for whoever it endorses. The group has endorsed in the past two winning presidential candidates, Joseph Estrada in 1998 and Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo in 2004. — Johanna Camille Sisante/RSJ/LBG, GMANews.TV
