Being in a different political parties is not an issue for celebrity couple Richard Gomez and Lucy Torres-Gomez, who are both running for public office this May elections.
Richard is running for mayoral position under Partido Demokratiko Pilipino-Lakas ng Bayan (PDP-Laban).

Meanwhile, Lucy, the incumbent representative of Leyte's Fourth District, is seeking for re-election under Liberal Party.

On his Instagram post last Monday, April 4, Richard showed two versions of Gomez baller giveaways.
He wrote on its caption: “Lucy and I belong to two different political parties but with only one goal---to improve the lives of our people in Ormoc City and the 4th District of Leyte. Usa ra ang Ormoc, ato ning Pangga-on!”
