Historic: women dominate Decision 2018 races

Posted: Updated:

History was made: Guam elected its first female Governor in Lou Leon Guerrero. The election commission must still certify the results, but the unofficial final tally shows about a 66-percent turnout and Leon Guerrero and running mate Josh Tenorio are our new Governor and Lt. Governor elect.

Here's a look at the numbers including the legislature, Washington delegate and attorney general results.

The Lou Leon Guerrero-Josh Tenorio team pulled out to a big lead in a three way race with republicans Ray Tenorio and Tony Ada and democratic write-in candidates Frank Aguon Jr. and Alicia Limtiaco. Later the only question became whether Lou and Josh would reach the 50-percent plus 1 vote threshold to avoid a run-off. The final tally Leon Guerrero-Tenorio 18, 081 or 50.7-percent, Tenorio-Ada, 9419 or 26.41-percent, and write-in votes garnered 8,161 or 22.8-percent.

The Legislative race shows a 10-to-5 democratic super majority, and the same margin in female to male senators-elect.  All seven incumbents who ran were re-elected. The top 15 are Therese Terlaje, Telena Nelson, Joe San Agustin, Tina Muna Barnes, Mary Torres, Amanda Shelton, Regine Biscoe Lee, James Moylan, Louise Muna, Clynton Ridgell, Kelly Marsh, Wil Castro, Sabina Perez, Telo Taitague and Jose Terlaje.

In the Washington delegate race, Democrat Michael San Nicolas beat republican Doris Flores Brooks 19,053 to 15,263.

For Attorney General, Leevin Camacho defeated Douglas Moylan in a landslide 23,802 to 11,344.

And for the Consolidated Commission on Utilities, the three board members are Simon Sanchez, Michael Limtiaco and Francis Santos.
