Marcos expects tight senate race
2019 senatorial candidate, Ilocos Norte Governor Imee Marcos, who was in Bacolod City recently with her son Borgy Marcos-Manotoc, said she expects the race to be “quite tight.”
“We really have to work hard,” the governor added.
Marcos, who is one of several candidates endorsed by Hugpong Pagbabago, Davao City Mayor Sarah Duterte’s political coalition, admitted earning a seat in the Senate would be difficult as there are several incumbents running, along with other popular figures.
The senatorial aspirant, who has now visited Bacolod City twice since formally filing her certificate of candidacy, admitted her brother, former Senator Ferdinand Marcos, Jr., “got a beating” in the province when he ran for vice president in 2016.
Marcos said she hopes, despite the area being a “bailiwick of our political opponents,” people will be kind.
Besides Bacolod City, she also visited Victorias City during her time in Negros Occidental./
