Former senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. is back on the ground on Tuesday, July 13, ass he visited several evacuation centers in Talisay, Batangas.
The Ilocano politiko, who said he is eyeing to run for a still-unspecified national post in the 2022 elections, distributed aid to residents who had to flee their homes following the recent activities of the Taal Volcano.
“Binisita namin ang ilang evacuation centers sa bayan ng Talisay, Batangas at nakapamahagi ng kaunting ayuda para sa mga naapektuhan ng bulkang Taal,” said Marcos on his Instagram post.
“Maraming salamat sa mga nagparating ng tulong at tiyak na daang daang pamilya ang nabiyayaan niyo,” he added.
Marcos, the son of the late strongman Ferdinand Marcos Sr., wore his signature red color during his visit. While he has not declared the position he would gun for in 2022, Marcos has so far been performing well in pre-election surveys for possible presidential candidates.
In the latest Pulse Asia survey, Marcos is in third place with 13%, followed by the frontrunner Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio with 28% and Manila Mayor Isko Moreno with 14%.
