If there is a red wave in tonight’s election, the wave has started in Guam. There, in the American territory, residents of the island have voted for a Republican for Congressional delegate for the first time since 1990.

James Moylan defeated Democrat opponent Judi Won Pat on Tuesday, according to the Guam Election Commission, according to the Daily Caller.

With a 55% voter turnout, Moylan defeated Won Pat by 5 points. Guam delegates don’t have voting power in the U.S. Congress, but have floor privileges and can participate in certain House functions.

Moylan filed his candidacy for delegacy in June, with roughly 800 signatures supporting the move.

The last Republican to serve in the position was T. H. Ben Garrido Blaz, who served from 1985 – 1993.

Moylan is a pro-life advocate who said he supported legislation to ban aboritons on babies with beating hearts.

“As a man of faith, I am deeply rooted in the belief that any child in a womb with a heartbeat has an individual right to life, which is why if Bill 291 was up for a vote today, I would support it,” Sen. James Moylan said.
