On a plane to General Santos City from Manila, boxing champ Manny Pacquiao today officially endorsed NP-NPC-LDP vice presidential bet Loren Legarda who joined him in the flight, along with NP standard bearer Manny Villar.

The team arrived at the General Santos City Airport at 9:00am, where they held a press conference.

"Manny Pacquiao is a national treasure, and I am grateful for his endorsement," said Legarda.

She added, "Manny Pacquiao makes me proud to be Pinoy, and even prouder that he is with us in the campaign. He has shown us what good old-fashioned hard work and determination can achieve. Kaya ako sumasaludo kay Manny 'di lamang bilang isang kumare at kaibigan, kundi bilang Pilipino."

Legarda is a kumare to Pacquiao as godmother to his youngest daughter Queen.

The team is set to campaign in General Santos City, Maasim, Kiamba, and Maitum in a chariot ride.

The sortie culminates in a grand rally at the Kiamba gym, attended by thousands of supporters.
