Democrats show solidarity

Posted: Sep 13, 2018 4:21 PM +10:00 Updated:

Democrats put on a show of solidarity, gathering Thursday at the Headquarters of gubernatorial candidates Lou Leon Guerrero and Josh Tenorio. While the party has long maintained a hold on the congressional seat and the legislative majority, it's been sixteen long years since they've controlled Adelup.

Lou and Josh were there, so was congressional candidate Michael San Nicolas and most of the democratic senatorial hopefuls. But the main focus is clearly on the gubernatorial race. Many say it's been a lack of post-primary unity that has thwarted the Democrats, but Leon Guerrero is confident they'll all get together for this general election.

"Some of them are already publicly showing their support. Governor Carl T.C. Gutierrez invited us to his appreciation party and introduced us to his supporters, and his leaders and we have assimilated a lot of those leaders and supporters into our campaign. I met with Senator Dennis Rodriguez, and he also gave his support and cooperation," she explained.

But she has not yet spoken to her main rival in the primaries, Senator Frank Aguon, Jr., despite several attempts to reach him. But Leon Guerrero says she respects that he needs space and is on the mend.  "He believes in the democratic principles, and he believes also in our agenda, and our platform that it is the best for the people of Guam. And I know him to be a man who fights for the people of Guam, and I know that he will come over and join us," she said.

But there is an effort underway by independent groups to write-in the Aguon-Limtiaco team. Leon Guerrero says while she respects everyone's right to express themselves. "I don't think that it will really hurt our campaign," she stated.
