With more endorsements coming in from religious organizations, political parties and other influential political families, Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. sees a clear victory on Monday.
Marcos made the statement at the Seda Hotel in Davao City, after capping a whirlwind of activities that covered Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao in just one day.
Running on an advocacy of unity, Marcos is the only candidate who visited the Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao areas in just one day.
The senator started his day with a mammoth campaign rally in Bacoor, Cavite before proceeding to Tacloban City for a show of force with over 10,000 supporters. He then flew to Davao City to meet multi-sectoral leaders.
Marcos said that with the kind of support he has been getting nationwide, he can see victory in the polls on May 9.
“I am elated by the recent endorsement of El Shaddai and other religious groups,” Marcos said. The Iglesia ni Cristo had earlier formally announced its support for Marcos and reports said even the Jesus is Lord Movement had thrown its support behind him.
Marcos was also endorsed by various political groups such as the Lakas-Christian Muslim Democrats, National Unity Party (NUP) and the United Bohol Opposition, among many others.
Various transport groups such as the Pasang Masda, Fejodap, Liga ng Transportasyon at Operators ng Pilipinas (LTOP), UV Express likewise endorsed his candidacy.
Several influential political families have openly come out to endorse Marcos’ candidacy, among them the Ynareses of Rizal, Estradas of Manila, Gomez of San Juan, Aguilar-Villars of Las Piñas, Eusebios of Pasig, Cojuangcos of Pangasinan, Dys of Isabela, Singsons of Ilocos Sur, Remullas of Cavite, Ortegas of La Union, Teveses of Bacolod, and Yaps of Tarlac.

Marcos. Among the political rivals who have expressed their support behind the candidacy of Marcos were those in Abra, Pangasinan, Ormoc City in Leyte, La Union, Cavite, Rizal, Davao, Tarlac as well as several Mindanao kingpins.
Party-list organizations such as the Guardians Brotherhood, Abakada, OFW CIS, Puwersa ng Partidong Atleta (PBA), Partido Bayan ang Bida (PBB) and a host of other retired generals, coconut farmers and sugar barons have cut across political barriers to support the Ilocano senator.
Several administration party members have also crossed party lines to support
Marcos. They include Cebu Mayor Adelino Sitoy, Cebu Rep. Benhur Salimbungan, Bulacan Mayor Tito Santiago, Bacolod City Mayor Monico Fuentebella, Cagayan De Oro Rep. Rolando “Klarex” Uy, Borongan City Mayor Ma. Agnes Abunda, Leyte Rep. Lucy Torres-Gomez, among others.
Several groups have also put Marcos in tandem with other presidential candidates like the Alyansang Duterte-Bongbong (ALDUB), Poe-Bongbong (PBB), Alyansang Roxas and Marcos (AROMA) and Binay-Bongbong (BIBONG).
“This clamor will become even clearer on Monday when we post a unanimous victory for the people,” said Marcos.
