Guam - UOG professor and KUAM
political analyst Ron McNinch addressed the Rotary Club of Guam this afternoon
on some of the big races on the primary level. He says what was once described
as being a very low-energy race for a long time has since changed with former
governor Carl Gutierrez throwing his hat in the ring as a write-in candidate he
predicts could be a contentious race.
"And what this creates for the Democrats and for the Republicans
is very much so a horse race to the end between the primary which Gutierrez
will be able to muster up enough votes to be on a write-in, a very viable write-in
not a play-around write-in, and this will create horse race leading into the
general election," he said.
He further added that on the legislative race, he sees the
potential for a critical election where the democratic majority could possibly
shift as republicans are known to have a lot more energy after the primary
