Although most of the newly elected Guam delegates to the national Republican convention remain uncommitted, Gov. Eddie Calvo’s endorsement of Sen. Ted Cruz is anticipated to give impetus to the delegation’s unified vote.
Calvo, who will head the nine-member delegation to the Republican Party’s convention in Ohio this summer, is also the chairman of the Cruz for President Campaign for Guam.
“As the territorial chairman of the Cruz campaign, obviously (the governor) holds a lot of clout,” said Mike Benito, chairman of the Guam Republican Party. “Ted Cruz actually put together a strong position statement for the benefit of Guam and one of the items he put there was the unfunded mandates, which resonated well with the governor and I’m sure will resonate as well with the rest of the delegates.”
Cruz is promising “to visit Guamanians and Chamorros, and to see firsthand what I expect will be the positive effects of my proposals to unleash the potential of the hard-working people of Guam and to reignite the promise of America.”
