    This the only other commonwealth other Puerto Rico that candidates can win delegates in. Northern Marianas is in the South Pacific and the US took possession after WWII and the surrender of Japan.

    Another reason I love the Shed - you learn new things. I literally have never heard of that place.

    Yep. DC, American Samoa, Guam, PR, the Northern Marianas, the Virgin Islands and "Americans Abroad" (a collection of Americans living overseas) all vote in their own presidential primary/caucus.

    Adding these 7 to the 50 states is why Barack Obama referred incorrectly to "57 states" during his primary run in 2008; he really meant and should have said "57 contests".
