Castro was surrounded by some of the leaders of the island’s Republican party including former Governor Eddie Calvo and former Public Auditor Doris Flores Brooks.

Incumbent delegate Michael San Nicolas has already declared his intention to run for re-election. No other Democrat has filed to run against him, yet. Former Congressman and UOG President Dr. Robert Underwood is widely rumored to be planning a campaign to challenge San Nicolas.

Congressman San Nicolas today said he, too, has officially filed for re-election.

In a statement to PNC News he wrote: “We also filed today with 1,000 submitted signatures and little fanfare, because this election will be an opportunity for the people to vote for either production or distraction, and there is only one production-oriented congressional ticket in this election,” stated San Nicolas.
