“Are you able to tell us ano yung pinag-usapan niyo ni Mayor Sara? Were you trying to convince her to be your VP or was presidency always the plan for you?” a member of the media who was present during the event asked.
Senator Bongbong admitted that he and the Davao City mayor talked about it, though they did not discuss anything specific.
“Well, very early on we talked about it. Yung very much much publicized… Yung pinuntahan namin siya bago nung birthday niya. We talked about politics, but no specifics. And since then hindi na kami nag usap sa specifics yung mga ganyang klaseng usapan, like, ‘ikaw mag president, ako mag vice, o ikaw mag vice, ako mag president,’ hindi na umabot pa yung usapan namin doon,” BBM revealed.
On the question whether he would consider Sen. Bong Go as VP candidate and his running mate, Sen. Bongbong first pondered on the possible tandem name, which made the moment lighter.
“Bongbong Bong? Bong to the third power?” BBM joked.
He then said it might be possible, but also mentioned about the sudden change of plans as a result of last Saturday’s event where it was Sen. Go, and not PRRD, who filed his COC for vice president.
“Baka pwede rin, we'll see. Kaya nga nagulat, siguro pati kayo, lahat naman tayo nagulat, yung mga pangyayari nung Sabado. So we still have to determine what will be the effects of that, not only on me, but also the rest of the candidates in the different…. in our party, specifically,” Senator BBM said.

According to the governor, Toni has the “freedom and right to interview whomsoever she may want.”
