Presidential candidate Ferdinand Marcos Jr. has brought to his hometown in Ilocos Norte his running mate Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte.

“Umuwi ako dito na may kasama. At sinama ko na po at ipinagmamalaki ko sa ating mga kakailian ang aking naging partner, ang aking naging kasama sa kampanyang ito, ang aking kasama sa paglalaban sa kilusan ng pagkakaisa, ang pinakamagaling,” said Marcos during the UniTeam campaign rally in Paoay last Wednesday.

Marcos said he is so lucky to have Duterte as his running mate in the upcoming elections.

“Sa lahat ng presidential candidate, hindi sila ganun kaswerte kagaya ko dahil napunta sa akin ang vice presidential, ang pinakamagaling, pinakamahusay, at bukod sa lahat ang may matibay na [paninindigan] sa kanyang paniniwala na ang pagkakaisa ang dapat nating gawin. Ang ating minamahal na Mayor Inday Sara Duterte,” Marcos added.

The Marcos-Duterte tandem has been calling for unity towards the goal of helping Filipinos rise from the terrible effects of the health pandemic.
