Biden Loses Caucus To Lesser-Known Candidate

President Joe Biden failed to win the American Samoa Democratic caucus on Super Tuesday. But it was not the fact that he was not able to completely sweep all states and territories up for grabs at the primary competition that was surprising. Rather, it was who he lost to.

Democrat Jason Palmer, an entrepreneur and investor who previously worked with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, won the caucus, according to results provided by the Democratic Party in American Samoa, an unincorporated territory of the United States located in the South Pacific Ocean.

According to the lesser-known candidate’s campaign, he qualified for 16 presidential ballots in states and territories.

He took four delegates out of the six delegates at stake in the caucus, leaving the remaining two to Biden.

Reacting to his win, he shared his excitement on X, writing, ​​”Honored to announce my victory in the American Samoa presidential primary. Thank you to the incredible community for your support. This win is a testament to the power of our voices. Together, we can rebuild the American Dream and shape a brighter future for all.”

The American Samoa Democratic caucus in 2020 was not favorable to Biden either, as he lost the territory to his then-rivals. He had only managed to get 8% of the vote while Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT) had 10% and former Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (R-HI). New York billionaire Michael Bloomberg was the winner of the night, with 50% of the votes even though he never won any primary contests before or after that.

Tuesday was not all losses for Biden as he had a string of victories in Iowa, Arkansas, Alabama, Tennessee, Oklahoma, Minnesota, Maine, Virginia, Colorado, North Carolina, Vermont and Texas. Fox News called the states for Biden shortly after votes closed, giving him a win over his opponents, including Rep. Dean Phillips (D-MN) and author Marianne Williamson.
