VIGAN CITY, Philippines—The coalition of senatorial bets under Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio’s regional party Hugpong ng Pagbabago (HNP) took its campaign caravan here on Monday.
Hosted by Ilocos Sur Gov. Ryan Singson, the party’s campaign rally in Tamag, Vigan City drew thousands of people who trooped to the venue as early as 8 a.m.
After the Vigan sortie, the HNP will stage a separate event in Laoag City, Ilocos Norte, on Monday afternoon.
Ilocos Norte is the bailiwick of administration-backed senatorial candidate Imee Marcos, who is also among HNP’s 13-man senatorial bets.

In 2016, Senator Grace Poe topped the presidential race in three of four provinces in Ilocos Region, namely Ilocos Sur, La Union, and Pangasinan.
Meanwhile, Ilocos Norte gave the most number of votes to the eventual winner, President Rodrigo Duterte.
In his public speeches, Duterte has said that Marcos was instrumental in his bid for presidency. /je
