CNMI's Sablan eyes fourth US Congress term

3:55 pm on 17 January 2014

The Northern Marianas Delegate Gregorio Kilili Sablan will seek a fourth term in the US Congress.

Our correspondent says he is set to announce his reelection bid this Sunday in time for his 59th birthday.

He says his experience and seniority will make him a better and more effective member of Congress.

Mr Sablan will once again run as an independent.

He is the CNMI's only-and so far only-non-voting delegate to the US House of Representatives by virtue of a 2008 law that also placed CNMI immigration under federal control.

To date, no one else has made known his or her intention to run in the November race.
