Vice presidential candidate Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” R. Marcos Jr. just shrugged off the smear campaign against him and presidential candidate Senator Miriam Defensor-Santiago, saying that the group behind could just be afraid of the “Miriam-Bongbong” tandem.

Marcos made this statement after he received reports that text messages have been circulating besmirching his and Santiago’s names.

“Well, the attack has been launched against me and the machinery of the clique behind this is strong. But with the truth and the trust of people behind me, they will fail in their dirty propaganda tactics,” he said.

Marcos said while he expects more foul, ugly and below the belt non-issue allegation to be hurled against him, he will not resort to such similar black propaganda against his rivals but will stick to a fair and issue-based campaign run.

“I will fight fairly. I believe God is my armor; the truth is my weapon,” Marcos said.
