According to Robin, he has options to run as a senator, as governor of Camarines Norte, or as mayor of Jose Panganiban, Camarines Norte.
The action star said that he thought deeply in 2018 to run as governor of Camarines Norte but backed out when he found out that he needed at least 150 million for the campaign. He said that he would have to borrow money to fund his campaign and if he wins, he would have to grant a ton of favors to the people who let him borrow millions of pesos.
