This news just in from the rare corner of the U.S. galaxy that gives mainlanders a peek into the future and provides tomorrow’s election results today: Former Democratic Gov. Carl Gutierrez took an early lead over his Republican rival, Sen. Eddie Calvo, in the race for governor in Guam. But that was still early, with just six of 12 reporting precincts counted by about noon Eastern time Nov. 2 and 3 a.m. Nov. 3 in the U.S. territory, which has the slogan of “Where America’s Day Begins” and where thousands of Marines are deployed with their families.
The tally just got closer as the count reached 26 of the 58 precincts, but the candidates had switched spots, with Calvo leading by a mere 184 votes, according to the tally at guampdn.com
. Turnout reached 80 percent at some precincts.
Guitierrez, whose political career began in 1972 when he was elected to the Guam Legislature and has been governor twice, is seeking election with Sen. Frank Blas Aguon Jr. as his lieutenant governor running-mate.
Calvo, a University of Notre Dame graduate who was elected to the Legislature in 2004, is running with Tennessee-born Sen. Ray Tenorio on his ticket.
