I got up early this morning and drove over to the Multi-purpose Building in Susupe to get the vote count so that I could be the first to put it on my blog. 9289 votes were cast yesterday. Here is the breakdown:
Davis, John Henry Jr. (I)
Won, Chong Man (I)
Atalig, Felipe Quitugua (I)
Cing, David Mendiola (D)
Crisostimo, Luis Palacios (I)
Lizama, Juan Tudela (I)
Gonzales, John Oliver Delos Santos (I)
Tenorio, Pedro Agulto (R)
Sablan, Gregorio Kilili Camacho (I)
There are still up to 1200 absentee ballots out there. Even taking that into account, Greg "Kilili" Camacho Sablan has a commanding 360 (3.8%) vote lead over second place Pete A. Tenorio.
The Saipan Blog hereby declares Greg Sablan as the first Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands Delegate!!!
Congratulations to Greg and all the other candidates.
