AFTER solidifying support from the so called “Solid North” voting block and other parts of Luzon, including some areas in Metro Manila through his “Unity Caravan,” vice presidential candidate Sen. Ferdinand Marcos Jr. is set to court Mindanao voters this week.
Marcos kicked off his Mindanao leg campaign sorties, anchored on his advocacy for national unity, with a motorcade around General Santos today.
Aside from General Santos, Marcos will also bring his “Unity Caravan” to Koronadal, South Cotabato, North Cotabato, Davao del Sur, and Zamboanga del Sur.
Marcos already got the endorsement of leaders of the “Solid North” composed of Region 1 or the Ilocos Region (Pangasinan, La Union, Ilocos Sur, and Ilocos Norte), Region 2 or the Cagayan Valley (Cagayan, Isabela, and Nueva Vizcaya and Quirino), and the Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR).
He also received a warm welcome when he brought his “Unity Caravan” to Liberal Party-dominated Puerto Princesa City, Palawan.
Political kingpins of the provinces of Laguna and Rizal, led by the Ynares family, have also thrown their support to the vice presidential bid of Marcos and his call for national unity. The Ynareses even declared that the province will forever be a “Marcos country”. They have been joined by old-time politicians of Metro Manila like the Estradas of Manila and San Juan City, the Eusebios of Pasig City, and the Abaloses of Mandaluyong City, who are ardent supporters of Marcos.
