place to gain strength this Holy Week as he faces twin storms in his
re-election bid and his love life.
Escudero is now tied at 3th-4th place in the latest Social Weather
Stations pre-election survey after ranking 2nd in the previous surveys.
Escudero recently grabbed headlines after Rey and Cecile Ongpauco,
the parents of his girlfriend, actress Heart Evangelista, accused him of
being a braggart and a drunk.
The Ongpaucos also urged the senator to leave Heart alone, saying
that their 28-year-old daughter is too young for the 43-year-old

and the Ongpaucos.
He said he is also heeding the advice of Sen. Miriam Defensor
Santiago to win the hearts of Evangelista's parents.
