THE University of Guam will be hosting a debate tonight for congressional candidates starting at 7 p.m.
Republican candidate Frank Blas Jr. has confirmed his attendance via a letter sent on Oct. 22.
Madeleine Bordallo’s camp, on the other hand, has stated publicly that the incumbent Guam delegate would not be attending.
Blas accused Bordallo of refusing to debate him “because she wants to hide from her record of failure in Congress.”
“For 10 years she made promises to our people and for 10 years she has failed us,” Blas said in a news release.
“Her failures were exposed during our recent debate so I'm not surprised that she is refusing to now attend the UOG Great Congressional Debate.”
Organized by the Guam Political Science Student Association and the Fifty-First Student Government Association, the UOG Great Congressional Debate intended to have the final two congressional candidates – incumbent Madeleine Z. Bordallo and challenger Frank Blas Jr., present their positions on vital issues.
