Biron, a doctor by profession, will face Rep. Arthur Defensor Jr. (3rd district), the son of incumbent Gov. Arthur Defensor Sr., for governor in the 2019 elections.
“We are looking for something good for people, but we are also looking for something good for us,” Garin said in Panay News report.
The politiko said that Biron has decided to choose among the Garins to be his running mate. He also promised not to field any rival candidate in the first district, the political turn of the Garins.
“Who could turn down such as a beautiful proposal by a handsome guy like Ferj Biron?” Garin said. “Sorry, Gov, for so many reasons we cannot be with you.”
Garin is the father of incumbent Gov. Christina Garin, Rep. Oscar “Richard” Garin Jr. (1st district), and AAMBA-Owa Party-list Rep. Sharon Garin.
