Taipei Mayor Ko Wen-je stumped for Democratic Progressive Party legislative
candidate Chung Chia-pin during a campaign rally in Pingtung on Sunday after reaching Kaohsiung from Taipei on a 380-kilometer bicycle stretch which began in the wee hours on Saturday.
“He is a talent not to be overlooked,” Ko said.
Dressed in the outfit of a professional cyclist, the mayor traveled with a contingent of bodyguards and logistics personnel, all on bicycle, who made sure that he has a safe and well-organized tour.
The morning event was Ko’s second trip to Pingtung when Chung was then-municipal mayor of Pingtung County. [FULL STORY]
