Guam - Today marked the deadline to file for this year's primary election. Among those making it official today include some familiar names who had previously served in the Guam Legislature.

Former senators James Espaldon and Frank Blas, Jr. both filed this morning under the republican ticket.

Espaldon said, "We're facing challenging times and I think what needs to happen for this island, is we need to get a good group of people in the legislature who have something to bring and something to contribute and I believe I do." Blas added, "I've been inspired by being back in the family business of the many opportunities that exist and I want to bring that kind of vigor, that kind of spirit, that kind of hope for our people our people."

Espaldon served in the 29th and 30th Guam Legislature whereas Blas served three terms in the 29th to the 31st also as the minority leader. Another former senator Hope Cristobal also filed this afternoon under the Democratic ticket. She served in the 23rd Guam Legislature and chaired the Federal and Foreign Affairs Committee. Romeo Carlos meanwhile filed his candidacy under the Republican ticket. Carlos had previously worked for senators Carmen Fernandez and Tina Muna Barnes and most recently has been involved in marketing, communications and design work.
