During her four-hour visit, the senator met with Iloilo City Mayor Jed Patrick Mabilog, some friends and supporters.

Poe, an adoptive daughter of actress Susan Roces and late movie actor Fernando Poe Jr., also made a brief but “emotional” stop at Jaro Cathedral, where she was abandoned when she was a baby.
