Togiola declares he will not run for Delegate’s seat
Gov. Togiola Tulafono confirmed over the weekend that he has no plans to seek American Samoa’s non-voting seat in the U.S. House of Representatives.
Togiola’s official announcement made on his Saturday radio program comes amid so much speculations in the territory as to whether or not the governor will throw his hat into the Congressional race and attempt to unseat incumbent Congressman Faleomavaega Eni, who is serving his 12th consecutive two-year term in office.
Togiola is barred by law from seeking a third four-year term as governor of the territory. His term as governor officially ends before 12noon Jan. 3, 2013 which is when the new governor takes the oath of office.
