The 2014 Northern Mariana Islands gubernatorial election was held on November 4, 2014, to elect the Governor and Lieutenant Governor of the Northern Mariana Islands. As no candidate received a majority of the vote, a run-off election was held 14 days later. Incumbent Republican Governor Eloy Songao Inos and running mate Ralph DLG. Torres were elected.[1] Inos, who served as Lieutenant Governor from 2009 to 2013, first became Governor following the resignation of his predecessor, Benigno Fitial.[2]


The previous gubernatorial election was held in 2009 for a 5-year term,[3] in order to move all elections to even years. Covenant Party candidate Benigno Fitial won re-election. His running mate, Eloy Inos, was elected to his first full term as lieutenant governor. Fitial resigned as Governor in February 2013 in the face of impeachment hearings.[2][4] Inos thus succeeded him governor. In September 2013, Inos, then a member of the Covenant Party, took steps to merge the Covenant Party with the territorial Republican Party, and ran for re-election as a Republican.[5]
