Politiko – Para sa Progresi-Bong gobyerno! Marcos gets support from dominant political plans in Pangasinan
Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” R. Marcos, Jr. today bared that he has secured the support of the two dominant political families in vote-rich province of Pangasinan as he began a two-day sortie of his “Unity Caravan” in the province to fortify the so-called “Solid North”.
In a press conference at Mangaldan town Marcos said he is buoyed by the warm reception he got from the people of Pangasinan as he also thanked his supporters for helping organize his visit to the province.
“I think I can report that the so-called “Solid North” is still very much alive and very solid,” Marcos said after motoring through various towns of Pangasinan including Pozzorubio, Manaoag, San Jacinto, San Fabian and Mangaldan.
Marcos said his claim is backed not only by the warm response from the ordinary people but also from political leaders even from opposing camps who are willing to cross party lines to support his vice presidential bid.
“Let me give you a prime example: your two groups that are running for governor are both friends of mine. Gov. Spine (Amado Espino, Jr.) is a good friend of mine and of course, Mark Cojuangco. His father is my ninong and has been a very close family member,” Marcos said.
The governor’s son, Amado Espino III, is Liberal Party’s bet for governor of the province and would square off for the post with Cojuangco of Nationalist People’s Coalition.
“I have asked them both for their support and they have both said that they will support me. So that’s a very important example,” he added.
Marcos said Pangasinan vote is crucial to his campaign strategy of reviving the “Solid North”.
