Leevin Camacho and Douglas Moylan, candidates for attorney general, will face off on Nov. 6 following the elimination of Frank Gary Gumatatao in the Aug. 25 primary.
Gumataotao endorsed Moylan, whom he described as “one of Guam's brightest lawyers with broad experience in civil and criminal law in both trial and appellate practice."
On his Facebook page, Gumataotao wrote, "He is seasoned, experienced and forward thinking as a proven attorney general. Don't be fooled by word salad or political double speak. Doug Moylan stayed on budget and returned funds every year while AG. He is independent with no Calvo ties.. I support his candidacy and urge everyone to choose Doug Moylan in November to ensure the corruption truly ends. Doug will revamp the offIce, improve child support services and increase convictions."
Acknowledging the challenge of getting ahead of Camacho who had a huge vote lead, Moylan is appealing to Gumatatotao's supporters for their votes.
“Based upon the election results, I will not win in the general election without the support of Gary Gumataotao’s voters. Gary is a close friend of mine and I am presently communicating with him. Gary and I not only have decades of experience by ourselves, but have much more in common,” Moylan said in a statement.
