What were the factors that led Mike Bloomberg to win the Democratic caucus in American Samoa?
Most likely it boils down to something he did that likely no other candidate did: pay attention to them
The Bloomberg campaign said Monday it has seven full-time staff located in American Samoa. They are also running television ads, targeted radio ads and targeted digital and print ads across the islands, according to the campaign.
That attention earned him a key endorsement
Bloomberg received the endorsement of Samoan Chief Fa’alagiga Nina Tua’au-Glaude ahead of Super Tuesday.
This area is remote to the US and it only carries 6 delegates. Also, the people of American Samoa are not generally US citizens, and thus cannot vote in the general election.
