Rep. Donna Christensen

Former Delegate from Virgin Islands’s At-Large District, Democrat

Christensen, a Democrat, was the delegate from the Virgin Islands from 1997 to 2014.

The Virgin Islands 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 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.
