Television host Willie Revillame, long courted by politicians to run for public office, said Tuesday he would support Sen. Bong Go for president and Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio for vice president.

Revillame said he was one with the Duterte family and that the rumors were true, the President had called him up at 3 a.m., but not to convince him to run for vice president against her daughter.
