Did Rep. Gwen Gar­cia cat­e­gor­i­cally say she’d run for gov­er­nor in 2019? The news re­port about her state­ment on dyHP ra­dio said she’s “eye­ing” and “con­sid­er­ing” the op­tion to re­turn to the Capi­tol.

A Philstar on­line story quoted Gwen: “I am se­ri­ously con­sid­er­ing ac­tu­ally, kay daw des­per­ate ni,” re­fer­ring to the Om­buds­man de­ci­sion or­der­ing her dis­missal from the House and per­pet­u­ally bar­ring her from pub­lic of­fice over the con­tract for back-fill ma­te­ri­als used on Capi­tol’s Balili prop­erty.

To Capi­tol watch­ers who heard the talk about Gwen pub­lic­ity ma­te­ri­als be­ing cir­cu­lated in many parts of the prov­ince, her ra­dio state­ment tends to con­firm this: she’s pre­par­ing for an­other run for the gov­er­nor­ship.

Not only is Gwen the strong­est con­tender in the anti-Jun­jun Da­vide camp, she might want to avenge the or­deal she suf­fered when she was sus­pended for six months as gov­er­nor on Dec. 17, 2012, which led to the Gar­cias’ loss of the Capi­tol.

For now, she’s just “se­ri­ously con­sid­er­ing.” No smart politi­cian will say “def­i­nitely” when the elec­tions are still one year and two months away.
