Guam - Republican candidate for Congress Margaret Metcalfe held a press conference this morning to better inform the community about the issue of Compact impact funding. She tells KUAM News the conference falls in line with assistant secretary for insular areas Esther Kia'aina's trip to Guam to get feedback on several federal-Guam relationship issues.

As for incumbent congresswoman Madeleine Bordallo she is on island campaigning as well. Last night she was a guest speaker at the Democratic Party of Guam's Jefferson Jackson Dinner. Bordallo spoke in place of United States Senator Mazie Hirono of Hawaii who had to cancel her trip to Guam due to Hurricane Ana impacting the Hawaiian Islands. Along with presenting a recorded message from Hirono, Bordallo rallied for the Democratic Party along with discussing issues that Guam Democrats have fought for including minimum wage and tax refunds.
