MANILA, Philippines — Senator-elect Imee Marcos relied on cash contributions to fund her campaign during the 2019 midterm elections, according to her Statement of Contributions and Expenditures (SOCE).

Based on Marcos’ SOCE, cash contributions for her Senate bid amounted to P137,560,000.


However, she only used up P132,146,754 for her campaign, all sourced from cash contributions.
