13 days to primary, Guam Republicans fight complacency

But while Democrats face winnowing out one gubernatorial ticket from four, Republican incumbent Lt. Governor Ray Tenorio and his running mate, Tony Ada face no opposition in this upcoming polling. Former Guam Public Auditor Doris Flores Brooks, who is seeking to unseat incumbent Madeleine Z. Bordallo has a similar political blessing.
