Okinawa Times wrote that Ginowan Mayor Sakima has told those close to him that he is willing to run in the gubernatorial election in the fall. The paper noted that the Abe administration and the ruling coalition view Sakima as a solid candidate to unseat incumbent Governor Onaga. The daily added, however, that some of his core supporters, including municipal assembly members, are concerned that he will step down as mayor to run in the gubernatorial race.
