It will be a showdown between Delegate Gregorio Kilili C. Sablan (Ind-MP) and Rep. Angel Aldan Demapan (R-Precinct 1).
Separately, the 2018 Gubernatorial Debate between Gov. Ralph DLG Torres (NMI-GOP) and his challenger, former governor Juan N. Babauta, is slated for Sept. 25, 2018, also at the Pedro P. Tenorio Multi-Purpose Center, from 5:30pm to 8pm.
