Election period is fast approaching. Few months ago,  Senator Francis “Chiz” Escudero  publicly admitted that he's in a relationship with Kapuso actress Heart Evangelista and a lot of speculations that he will use her for his political ambition.

According to an interview with ANC, he said that he and Evangelista have been together for six months after his annulment was finalized in June 2012.

“Lahat naman ng pumapasok sa relasyon, gusto serious. Wala namang pumapasok sa relasyon na naglalaro lang at hindi seryoso. Ang lungkot naman nun.”, he said, when he was asked if their relationship is serious.

It seems that he became more comfortable talking about his love life, since he became a guest host for Kris Aquino’s television show "KrisTV."

Meanwhile, with a lot of criticisms on their relationship, other people think that he's using her for his campaign and political strategies.

He talked to her about joining the campaign for the May polls.

“She has her own schedule. She has her own obligations. And I don’t want and say na may gamitan o naggagamitan,” he said.

 “To be fair to her, and to me too, si Heart na sya bago ko pa sya nakilala. Whoever and what she is, her status in the showbiz community and in media, ganoon din naman ako maski na papaano bago ko sya nakilala. May narating naman na kami sa isa’t isa naming field bago namin nakilala ang isa’t isa at hindi na kailangang magtulakan pa o magbuhatan pa.”, he added

He said that he wants to separate his personal life with his work. “Usually, that’s where the trouble, when the trouble, troubles will start to come up. Either sa trabaho, kapag nakialam ang personal o sa personal kapag nakialam ang trabaho.”
