Guam - Former Democratic Party of Guam chairman Attorney Mike Phillips is representing Governor-elect Eddie Calvo and Lieutenant Governor-elect Ray Tenorio in an election challenge filed by General Election opponents. Phillips, on behalf of the Republican duo, filed a motion to dismiss the election challenge filed by former governor Carl Gutierrez and Senator Frank Aguon, Jr.

According to the motion, they argue that Gutierrez failed to make clear that he was a voter and he failed to verify the complaint that was filed with the court. Gutierrez and Aguon are contesting the election results, alleging there were numerous flaws during the November 2 election that affected the outcome of the gubernatorial race.

The main argument is that Gutierrez had 15 days following the declaration of the results of the election, but didn't file suit until 16 days later.
