How do you let Leni Robredo win as VP? Campaign pa more!
Sen. Bam Aquino has been helping Camarines Rep. Leni Robredo in the latter’s bid for vice-presidential candidate during the elections next year.
Aquino, who is now Robredo’s campaign manager, said he and his team are working on how the widow of the late Interior and Local Government Sec. Jesse Robredo learn the ropes of running a national campaign.
Being a newbie in politics, Aquino said he and Leni agreed on bringing in “fresh and new blood” in politics.
“Ako palagay ko ang pinakamahalaga ay makilala ng mga tao si Leni Robredo, lahat noong mga nakakakilala sa kanya, kung sa una hindi pa siya kilala, pagkatapos siyang makilala gusto na siyang iboto,” he said.
“So I think that’s really the main strategy, run an authentic campaign, like our candidate. Ipakilala siya nang maayos sa mga tao at makita nila ang kanyang kagustuhang tumulong sa ating mga kababayan,” Aquino added.
Aquino noted that Leni is up against Senators Francis Escudero, Ferdinand Marcos Jr and Gregorio Honasan, who already have awareness nationwide.
He admitted their team needs to beef up their strategy to enable to reach out to many voters, especially in far-flung provinces. Aquino, who is a cousin of President Aquino, is confident that Leni is doing a great job as they pursue a more aggressive strategy through the mainstream and social media.
Robredo is the running-mate of Liberal Party standard-bearer, Sec. Manuel Roxas II.
