American Samoa woman set to declare candidacy for Congress

9:23 am on 20 January 2006

The former unsuccessful Congressional candidate for American Samoa, Aumua Amata Coleman says she will soon make a formal announcement of her candidacy for Congress in November.

She plans to return to Pago Pago next month after Congress reconvenes to make her formal announcement.

Aumua has tried unsuccessfully many times to unseat the incumbent Faleomavaega Eni, who has already filed papers with the Federal Election Commission of his intention to seek re-election this year.
