Who is Jason Palmer? The entrepreneur who beat Biden in American Samoa caucuses

March 06, 2024

In a surprising yet politically inconsequential upset on Super Tuesday, U.S. President Joe Biden lost the American Samoa Democratic caucuses to entrepreneur Jason Palmer. Palmer told ABC News late Tuesday that he realized he had won American Samoa at precisely 9:30 p.m. In a chipper yet surprised mood, Palmer told ABC News: "It feels great." "And so I thank the people of American Samoa for stepping up to make that statement for the rest of America." "I think the people in American Samoa really responded positively to my message of civility and inclusion," he told ABC News.
