MANILA, Philippines - Host-actress Kris Aquino on Thursday expressed her support for two senatorial candidates -- Francis "Chiz" Escudero and Grace Poe-Llamanzares.

On Twitter, Aquino said she will join the two candidates in their campaign until May.

Escudero used to be Aquino's guest host in her morning talk show "Kris TV". Llamanzares, meanwhile, is the host-actress' friend.

"I've refrained from commenting about the Senatorial elections but since I'm a responsible, law abiding, very high income tax paying citizen," Aquino wrote.

"Honestly Sen Loren & Sen @sayChiz have consistently been 1 or 2 in the surveys, take turns lang sila. I personally know Grace Poe & believe in her integrity & intelligence & in fact committed to join her & @sayChiz all the available campaign days left in May be4 the 13th," she added.


Meanwhile, Aquino promised on Twitter that she will "turn the other cheek when PNoy is attacked during this campaign season" as part of her sacrifice this Lent. 

President Benigno Aquino III is the host-actress' brother.
