LA CARLOTA CITY -- Liberal Party standard bearer Mar Roxas yesterday pledged continued support for the Negros Island Region should he win the presidency, and slammed Rep. Alfredo Abelardo Benitez (Neg. Occ., 3 rd District) who is now supporting the presidential bid of Grace Poe.
Benitez, former Negros Occidental LP chairman, said last week that Poe will win the presidential race in Negros Occidental that has been dubbed as “Mar Roxas country”.
Liberal Party presidential bet Mar Roxas, his runningmate Leni Robredo and their senatorial candidates barnstormed through four cities in Negros Occidental yesterday drawing a crowd that organizers placed at about 55,000.
Negros Occidental Gov. Alfredo Marañon Jr. placed the crowd in Cadiz City at 30,000, while former Negros Occidental Governor Rafael said the crowd at the Bacolod rally last night was 15,000.
