MANILA – The Khonghun family proved to be a powerhouse in the 2019 midterm elections in their hometown in Zambales.

With election returns from all its 77 clustered precincts already transmitted, the partial and unofficial data from from Comelec as of 12:26 p.m. show three Khonghuns leading their respective races.

Jon Khonghun is way ahead in the mayoral race against Ramon Lacbain, while Jeff Khonghun is poised to win his congressional bid in the province over Mitos Magsaysay and Allan Avila.

Meanwhile, Jay Khonghun, who recently made headlines for being tagged in President Rodrigo Duterte's new "narco-list," is also likely to win the vice gubernatorial race in Subic.

The incumbent Subic Mayor, who is also Aiko Melendez’s boyfriend, has already denied any connection to the illegal drug trade.
