The island territory of Guam may be starting the wave.
Election officials there are the first to call their midterm election, with voters electing a Republican delegate over the Democrat incumbent.
For Congressional Delegate, Republican James Moylan earned 52.19% over Judith Won Pat’s 47.15%. Moylan will fill the seat being vacated by incumbent Democrat Michael San Nicolas, who stepped aside to run for governor of Guam but lost in the Democrat primary.
The island has approximately 50,000 eligible voters who are also deciding on Guam’s next governor and lieutenant governor, attorney general, and the 15 senators of the 37th Guam Legislature. There are 19 voting districts in Guam and over 67 precincts.
Guam’s congressional representative is a non-voting delegate to the U.S. House of Representatives. According to the Pacific Daily News, Moylan is the second Republican elected to the post since Congress created it in 1972.
Guam is 10 hours ahead of Eastern Standard Time.
