MANILA -- Actress Heart Evangelista congratulated Tuesday her husband, Chiz Escudero, for winning the gubernatorial race in the province of Sorsogon.
In an Instagram post, Evangelista said it's time for the outgoing senator to focus on his home province.
"Congratulations to my Governor Chiz Escudero! You've worked in the Senate for such a long time, but now, it's time for you to concentrate in your beloved Sorsogon, the place which you and your family have loved for years," she said in the caption.
Escudero was proclaimed governor on Tuesday morning after receiving the highest number of votes at 303,960, while rival Bladi Frivaldo (PDPLBN) got only 31,867 votes, based from election returns transmitted from all 768 clustered precincts.
The actress added that she cannot wait to see Escudero's plans for Sorsogon.
"For the past few months, you've told me endlessly about your plans for Sorsogon - developing their tourism, sports programs, health programs, and agricultural industry. I cannot wait to see your visions come to life. Sorsogon, it's your time to shine!," Evangelista said.
"My love, I'll always be here for you, cheering you on forever," she added.
