“Let the color rose rain again in the city tomorrow,” Treñas said in a Facebook post, referring to the campaign color of Robredo.

Robredo and Pangilinan last visited the city on February 25 when they joined about 40,000 supporters in a rally at the Iloilo Sports Complex. The rally set off bigger rallies in other provinces and cities.

Robredo trounced rival Ferdinand Marcos Jr. in Iloilo City and the province of Iloilo in the 2016 vice presidential race.

She garnered 706,052 votes while Marcos got 127,434 votes in Iloilo province. She also won over Marcos by a wide margin in Iloilo City garnering 137,662 votes against Marcos’ 33,778 votes.
