President Joe Biden will be nominated for the Democratic presidential nomination. If there is, there is no doubt. Super Tuesday offered no surprises for Biden, except for American Samoa. The small part of Samoa, which includes seven islands belonging to the United States, was keen to vote for a completely different candidate. A candidate few had ever heard of.

Jason Palmer received 51 of the 91 votes in the islands, thus securing four of the six delegates awarded there. Biden received the other forty votes.

How could this happen? Palmer, 52, is a Baltimore investor who has invested in campaigns in the Pacific Rim.

β€œIt is time that we have a president in Washington, D.C., who will champion American Samoa,” he signed off. X Monday in connection with an event he attended there.

Rebuilding the American Dream

Ballmer previously worked for Microsoft and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, among others. He announced his campaign in November, but has received no attention so far.

β€œI am honored to have won the American Samoa primary. Thanks to this amazing place for all the support…Together we can rebuild the American dream and create a brighter future for everyone,” he wrote. X After victory.

This is not the first time American Samoa has presented surprises. In the 2020 primaries, Michael Bloomberg achieved his only victory there.
