Guam - In the Democrat senatorial primary race, everyone moves forward, with that party fielding exactly 15 candidates. Last night some of the candidates shared what they plan to focus on should they get elected.

Incumbent senator Tom Ada told KUAM News, "Of course, generally I want to focus on economic development on our island. I want to continue focusing on the issues related to transportation our public infrastructure; of course, public safety in general the reason why they're important is in particular in the area of transportation is that 80 percent our goods that we consume come through our port, so it's very important that we have an efficient port of entry there."

And newcomer and the youngest candidate on the ballot, Derek Baza Hills said, "I think we need to focus on the mission of the three top things that I want to do if elected and the people of Guam give me that opportunity - job creation by making sure that education is affordable for many of our young folks that are going to the University of Guam and the Guam Community College, and for families who want to send their kids to the university and GCC so when you grow education and make it affordable you're also opening the door to higher paying quality jobs."
