Pili, Camarines Sur (CNN Philippines) — Camarines Sur is just one of a number of provinces that put to the test the Poe-Escudero tandem.

Incumbent governor Migz Villafuerte and his family are backing Sen. Grace Poe for president, but not her running mate, Sen. Francis Escudero.

The governor, and his father, L-Ray Villafuerte, are rooting for Leni Robredo, representative of the province's Third District.

Escudero, who hails from neighboring Sorsogon, campaigned separately in CamSur a few days ago.

Aside from Robredo and Escudero, two other vice-presidential candidates are also trying to capture the so-called Bicol vote.

Senators Sonny Trillanes and Alan Peter Cayetano, one way or the other, both trace their family roots to Bicolandia.

As for Poe, she's just grateful to have the Villafuertes on her side.

But support of the region's most influential clan raises questions on her stand against political dynasties.

CamSur has a little over a million voters.

The Villafuertes brought her to two major rallies, one in Iriga City, and the other, in the town of Pili on Friday (April 15).

With the drop in her survey numbers just three weeks before election day, Poe is counting on public support — and divine intervention.

Speaking to reporters, Poe says she's ready to accept whatever the results of the elections will be.
