Guam - In the congressional race, two candidates under the Democratic Party made it official by filing with the Guam Election Commission today. Congresswoman Madeleine Bordallo is seeking a seventh term as the island's delegate and is looking forward to the competition.

"I want to continue my work in Congress because of my seniority I think it's important that I continue to help the people of Guam," she said. "I have quite a bit of legislation in the U.S. Congress now pending. It's important to me, but it's moving along so I want to continue in that direction."

Along with Margret Metcalfe who is running on the Republican ticket, Bordallo will go up against Matthew Artero for the democratic nomination. Artero says he has a lot of respect for Bordallo and hopes to use his experience in real estate to supply the people with the highest economic opportunities possible. "So there's a lot of experience in mediation and being calm, cool and collective and helping people see their common ground so that's what I would be bringing with my experience to congress is the attitude of working together and seeing we're all in the same boat," he said.
