Rep. Fofó Sunia

Former Delegate from American Samoa’s At-Large District, Democrat

Sunia, a Democrat, was the delegate from American Samoa from 1981 to 1988.

American Samoa 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.
