Edu Manzano is Gibo Teodoro's running mate
Edu Manzano, actor, former chair of the Optical Media Board and former Makati vice mayor, is the vice presidential candidate of the administration party Lakas-Kampi-CMD for the 2010 elections, announced party chairman and Interior Secretary Ronaldo Puno.
Manzano was chosen as presidential candidate Gilbert "Gibo" Teodoro's running mate among the party's bets divulged by Executive Sec. Eduardo Ermita on November 4: Sen. Ramon "Bong" Revilla Jr., Tourism Sec. Joseph Ace Durano, and Sen. Loren Legarda, the vice presidential candidate of the Nationalist People's Coalition.
Teodoro and Manzano are friends and both De La Salle University alumni. In a Bandila interview on November 11, Manzano said about Lakas' offer: "Para akong nasuntok ni Manny Pacquiao eh. Hindi naman yon ang aking inaasahang posisyon."
On November 11, Manzano still seemed hesitant about the invitation of Lakas to run for Vice President
