In a nutshell, JV Bautista is encapsulated in one of his political (internet only?) ads:

Ipinaglaban ka sa lansangan.

Ipinaglaban ka sa Kongreso.

Ipaglalaban ka sa Senado.

Abogado ng Masa

JV Bautista has a track record of consistent service to the poor and the nation. While he was part of EDSA 2, his continuing support for Erap for several years now shows he has apologized for that atrocious 2001 "People Power" coup. More information about him can be found at his blog, JV Bautista

Nationalist. Patriotic. Capable. Pro-Masses. Pro-Erap. Ano pa? Pls. vote Atty. JV BAUTISTA for Senator! Numero 4 sa balota.
