Biden Loses Caucus in American Samoa

Amidst a run of victories on Super Tuesday, President Biden somehow managed to lose the Democratic caucus in American Samoa to an unknown contender.

Decision Desk HQ (DDHQ) declared the contest on Tuesday night and verified the results with the Democratic Party of American Samoa.

The longshot Democrat Jason Palmer, an entrepreneur challenging the incumbent, was predicted to prevail in the Democratic contest in the U.S. territory.

A campaign release obtained by PR Newswire claims that Palmer is only eligible to run for president in 16 states and territories. Palmer was a prominent campaigner in the region.

Despite not having any electoral votes in the general election since it is a U.S. territory, American Samoa is nevertheless eligible to send 11 delegates to the Democratic National Convention later this year. Each of Palmer and Biden has gained three delegates.

Along with over a dozen other states, American Samoa held its party contest on Super Tuesday. Hundreds of delegates will be present at each party’s table during the primaries and caucuses on March 5.
