Former Guam Del. Michael San Nicolas is seeking to enlist the veterans' vote in his new bid for the congressional seat.


Listing his accomplishments during his first term, San Nicolas said, "The same solution-oriented leadership that achieved this breakthrough is once again needed in the halls of Congress, and we are hopeful that our island veterans and their families will give us a chance to keep pushing these milestones through for them."


He cited the Government Accountability Office's recent report, which outlined key deficiencies in veteran healthcare in Guam, U.S. territories and the freely associated states.


"We were so grateful for the support of our colleagues to include this GAO study on veteran care in our territories when we passed the Honoring Our Pact Act during my time in Congress, where we also passed landmark legislation to recognize Agent Orange use and Veteran eligibility on Guam," San Nicolas said.


"With this formal recognition by the GAO, the Congress is now armed with the data necessary to secure solutions for our veterans that have been long outstanding, and we are humbled to have been able to deliver this for those who have sacrificed so much for our freedom," San Nicolas said.


San Nicolas is seeking the Democratic nomination in the August primary. He is running against Sen. Amanda Shelton and Ginger Cruz,
