Report: Republican Declares Victory for Guam Government

HAGATNA, Guam -- A Republican legislator on Guam has declared victory in the U.S. territory's gubernatorial race.

The Pacific Daily News reports that Republican Sen. Eddie Calvo declared victory in Tuesday's general election, though rival Carl Gutierrez sent supporters home Wednesday morning without conceding the race.

Gutierrez is a former governor of the territory. Republican Gov. Felix Camacho was barred from seeking re-election because of term limits.

The paper says with all 58 precincts reporting, unofficial results show Calvo garnered 19,875 votes to 19,292 cast for Gutierrez.

Calvo is a five-term senator and is the minority leader in the territory's legislature. Gutierrez served two terms as governor, ending in 2002.

Guam's congressional delegate, Democratic Madeleine Bordallo, ran unopposed for re-election.
