Agusan del Sur Vice Gov. Samuel Tutor dismissed as “untrue and “pure speculation” the reports that Gov. Adolph Edward Plaza will field either of his sisters- Rep. Evelyn Plaza-Mellana and Rep. Maria Valentina Plaza as substitute candidate in the 2019 gubernatorial race.
The candidacy of Santiago Cane Jr., the ruling Partido Demokratiko Pilipino–Lakas ng Bayan (PDP-Laban) and the family’s bet for governor is final, according to Tutor.
Cane will be challenged by former judge and Trento town mayor Larry Clapiz (Partido Federal ng Pilipinas).
