Guam - In the Decision 2012
congressional race, since the first set of results started rolling in it was no
looking back for Madeleine "Momma Bear" Bordallo, who roared way past
her Republican challenger, Minority Leader Frank Blas, Jr.
Even before the last set of precincts were finished being counted,
Senator Blas began closing down his headquarters a little after 3 in the
morning. He wasn't conceding, but said he wanted to make sure his supporters
got home safely. "Don't lose confidence," he maintained. "I
think we ran a very good campaign and
the last vote has yet to be tallied. Again, there's still a lot of other things
for us to look forward to so no, don't go putting your head down. It's not over
yet - we still have some talking we want to do."
Bordallo said of her competitor, "I wish him well; it was a
quite and interesting race. I took the high road it wasn't easy because he did
criticize me a great deal, but we're friends. But I always look at it that way -
Guam is a small community. I have many friends
on both sides of the aisle. I play a bipartisan
race in Washington, DC. I have to we only have one seat."
Congresswoman Bordallo heads back to Washington to serve her sixth term in the
House of Representatives.
