The Onion firmly skewers the election again: Republicans Urge Minorities To Get Out And Vote On Nov. 3. Truth or fiction?
The results are in. The Republicans gain a commanding lead in the Guam Legislature, probably due to the tax hikes of last year that the Democrats pushed through. Looks like the Republicans now have a 10-5 majority in the legislature and not a single Republican was voted out of office. Five democratic incumbents got the boot this year, including current Speaker of the Legislature Ben Pangelinan.
Prop A went down in flames, the way all gambling initiatives do. Over 61% of voters said no to the gambling referendum. Never underestimate the stranglehold the church has on the general populace of Guam.
And it looks like Pedo won a close race in Yoña for mayor, 991 to 879 for former mayor Bernardo. I didn’t think it would be this close.
Election results are available at the PDN and KUAM news.
