Rep. Aumua Amata

Delegate from American Samoa’s At-Large District, Republican

Amata, a Republican, is the delegate from American Samoa and has served since Jan 6, 2015 (next election in 2018).

Because American Samoa is a territory of the United States, and not a state, it has no senators or representatives in Congress. Instead it sends a delegate to the House of Representatives 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.
