Puerto Rico is a territory of the United States. Because it is not a state, it has no senators or representatives in Congress.
Instead, it sends a delegate to the House of Representatives, called the Resident Commissioner, with essentially no voting privileges. Delegates have a marginal role in Congress and their constituents are not represented in Congress in the same manner as most citizens.
