Governor Jose Zubiri Jr. proclaimed Davao Mayor Rodrigo Duterte as his presidential bet, as well as most of Bukidnon.
The governor made the announcement during the Kaamulan festival.
According to a Rappler report, Zubiri said: "This is the mandate of the people of Bukidnon."
The same report said that the governor made an informal survey among 85% of the local leaders. He found out that over 60% of them prefer Duterte in the nation's top position.
However, the same could not be said for Duterte's running mate, Senator Peter Cayetano.
A report from Politiko said that Zubiri formally endorsed LP bet Camarines Sur Congresswoman Leni Robredo for Vice President.
He explained: “Bakit si Leni? Dahil naniniwala ako katuwang siya sa trabaho ng yumao niyang asawa na ating hinahangaan."
