The Hugpong Pagbabago senatorial candidates led by presidential daughter, Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio, are also coming to Negros Occidental.

Vice Governor Eugenio Jose Lacson yesterday said the Hugpong senatorial candidates are expected to visit the province by the end of March.

Rep. Alfredo Benitez is among those preparing for the arrival of PDP-Laban senatorial bets and President Rodrigo Duterte on March 8, Lacson also said that former Kasangga party-list Rep. Ma. Lourdes Arroyo is taking charge of the visit of Hugpong senatorial candidates.
