‘Solid North’ dead? Kakampinks debunk ‘urban myth’ with insane Isabela, Cagayan rallies

Vice President Leni Robredo admitted that just the thought of visiting the areas made her feel uneasy

Vice President Leni Robredo’s supporters are on a mission to show that the ‘Solid North’ is merely a myth that has long fooled the rest of the country. Robredo’s recent rallies in Cagayan and Isabela may have proven just that.

Both provinces are considered former senator’s Bongbong Marcos’ backyards which only made the Naga native’s visit all the more special. In the 2016 vice-presidential race, Robredo only accumulated 50,000 votes in Cagayan, while Marcos easily got over 370,000.

Come May, she might just surpass her previous high. Photos show a sea of pink greeting Robredo in Tuguegarao City, leaving her overwhelmed.

She emphasized how her team never felt discouraged to provide help to the province despite the resentment from the locals.

Noong nakaupo na po akong vice president, kahit po talong-talo ako dito sa inyo, bawat sakuna, isa ako sa mga pinakaunang andito,” she told the crowd.

Hindi ko po tiningnan, hindi po ako tumingin sa kulay ng politika. Basta po tinatamaan ‘yung Cagayan ng bagyo, nandito po ako,” she added.

She admitted that the thought of visiting the areas made her feel uneasy.

Alam ninyo, bago kami pumunta dito ni Senator Kiko, medyo kinakabahan ako… Yung tanong ko, gaano kaya kadami yung sasalubong sa amin? Kaya nakakagulat na nandito kayo ngayong lahat kahit napakaaga pa kaya maraming maraming salamat,”

Supporters kept chanting “Awan Solid North!” which translates to “There is no Solid North.”

The Robredo-Pangilinan tandem also visited Isabela over the weekend. This time, there were more supporters, cementing the Pink movement as a real threat to the so-called Solid North.

Kakampinks at the Isabela People’s Rally also convinced the candidates that Solid North doesn’t exist.

The event drew over 10,000 supporters.

Marcos won all northern provinces in 2016 except Batanes. However, the kakampinks are working hard not to see a repeat.
