Millennials could help restore Marcos dynasty

MANILA -- The "People Power" movement chased out dictator Ferdinand Marcos in 1986, but 30 years later, a new generation of Filipinos may be about to place his son a heartbeat from the presidency.

Ferdinand Marcos Jr., a senator popularly known as "Bongbong," is one of two front-runners in the vice presidential race, after polling over 28% from April 26-29. In the Philippines, vice presidents are elected separately. The electorate of nearly 55 million will cast their ballots on May 9.
