Guam - The race for Guam's elected attorney general was a lopsided victory, as Elizabeth Barrett-Anderson, herself a former senator, former judge, and former attorney general, handily defeated incumbent Leonardo Rapadas, earning nearly more than double the amount of the his votes.

With her track record of tough and fair jurisprudence and the promise to crack down on crime by establishing community resources, bringing forth indictments, and securing convictions for those that break the law, Barrett-Anderson had the strongest showing of any candidate in any race.

As for Rapadas, he'll close out his term in office having introduced programs to cut down on drug use within the island community, work with the US Attorney for Guam and the CNMI on human trafficking, and helping to keep kids safe online.
