Bam says volunteers strength of Leni, Kiko

Former senator Paolo Benigno “Bam” Aquino IV said the strength of the Leni Robredo-Kiko Pangilinan campaign is in its volunteers and supporters.

Aquino, who is their national campaign head, met with the Robredo People’s Council volunteers in Negros Occidental at the Acacia Hotel Bacolod Saturday, February 19.

“This is a very different campaign from anything we’ve seen. Our strength is in the volunteers and supporters who were moved into action that even before our HQ came out with posters, you already made your own posters. Even before our HQ come out with a campaign jingle, you already made your own,” he said.

He said with Robredo’s declaration that she was running for president, “a spark was ignited, people were awakened and what we are seeing now is a campaign that is truly from the ground-up.”

Aquino said their goal until May 7, which is the last day of campaign period, is to gain more supporters for Robredo and Pangilinan.

“It is important to look for those undecided and soft supporters of other candidates and engage them – our task is to convert more kakampinks to win this election,” he said.

Former governor Gov. Rafael Coscolluela, who heads the Leni-Kiko campaign in Negros Occidental, said their challenge is to raise to 65 percent Robredo’s votes in the province from the 61 percent she got in the vice presidential race in 2016.

“This is an even bigger challenge because we have very few officials who are openly endorsing VP Leni. But if there is something we can count on, we have a huge number of warm volunteers that other candidates don’t have and we can deliver if we all do our share to make sure VP Leni wins this race,” he said.*
