"Marami pong salamat sa Lakas-CMD sa inyong pagtitiwala upang maging pambato ng ating partido bilang kongresista ng Unang Distrito ng Cavite. Makaaasa po kayo na ipagpapatuloy natin ang paglilingkod sa ating mga kadistrito tungo sa kaunlaran at progresong dama at pinakikinabangan ng lahat. Tuloy ang laban sa pagbabago!" Revilla wrote.
