Manila, Philippines – Senator Grace Poe who stars on surveys for senatorial race showed support for other senatorial bets who she also wants to win in the May midterm polls.

Politiko reported that on Tuesday, Poe mentioned former senator Serge Osmeña and former Solicitor General Florin Hilbay as two of the senatorial candidates she is endorsing.

Saying that she would be campaigning together with Osmeña in some areas, she described him as his “mentor”.

When asked for senatorial candidates she is supporting, Poe said she does not want to hurt the feelings of other bets.

 “I don’t wanna hurt the feelings of others if I don’t mention their names but I hope I will be forgiven if I base it on certain things they have done. For example, Florin Hilbay. I think he was the OSG (Office of Solicitor General) at the time.”

Meanwhile, despite the huge possibility of winning the race as she consistently topped the pre-election voter preference surveys, Poe said she’s still “running scared.”

“[While] it’s good to be number one, the challenge is also there to be able to maintain that and there are a lot of viable and very popular candidates in this race,” she said.
