by Sabrina Salas Matanane

Guam - Democratic Party of Guam Chairman, Senator Rory Respicio confirms with KUAM that Senator Frank Aguon, Jr has declined the nomination to run as Lt. Governor of Guam with former Governor Carl Gutierrez in the upcoming gubernatorial election. Respicio said Aguon declined the nomination via email. The two were nominated by the party last night. Both have been unavailable for comment.

Senator Respicio wrote, "The party recognizes Sen. Aguon for what we are sure was a very thorough and thoughtful deliberation process with his family. This nomination came from Democratic party leaders, and there were no objections from any member of the Central Executive Committee. We commend the Central Executive Committee for remaining focused on putting together a team for this year's gubernatorial election, including recruiting additional senatorial candidates to fill our slate, as well as continued support for Congresswoman Madeleine Z. Bordallo to remain in Congress. Our work continues along this campaign course. We are pleased with all the public attention on this matter as it shows real interest in the Democratic Party, and emphasizes hunger for a change in leadership at Adelup."
