Bordallo says Blas is grandstanding

Guam - Senator and Republican congressional candidate Frank Blas Jr., will be flying solo tonight at what was supposed to be a congressional debate hosted by the University of Guam. Congresswoman Madeleine Bordallo was unable to attend tonight's event due to a scheduling conflict.  Her campaign manager, Cliff Guzman, told KUAM News debates require advance time to prepare and the invitation from the UOG students came in too late to get on Bordallo's schedule.

Senator Blas meanwhile expressed disappointment, saying tonight's debate would have been the perfect venue for students and residents to hear from the two candidates and how they intend to best represent the island. "And the people of Guam need to hear, they deserve to hear. What is she hiding from? Is she afraid she's going to have another Biden moment? And blame the people of Guam for her failures? If that be the case, she should come out and talk to the people," he said. 

Bordallo's camp meanwhile says Blas is grandstanding and claims Blas chose not to attend a debate hosted by the Guam Medical Society and could not attend another debate hosted by the Association of Government Accountants. Blas countered and says the GMS was set to have an informal discussion but organizers never got back to him about changing the dates. He adds he did confirm his participating in the AGA debate.

Meanwhile, the UOG Political Science Student Association and the SGA has opened tonight's event to all candidates running for office. The forum begins at 6pm at the UOG School of Business and Public Administration's Atrium.
