Michael Bloomberg received the endorsement of Samoan Chief Fa’alagiga Nina Tua’au-Glaude ahead of Super Tuesday, when voters in 14 states as well as American Samoa will take to the polls.
"I believe in Mike's message of change for the people of American Samoa -- he has the experience and the vision to bring about the change we need - including staving off climate change, which will be devastating to our home. He has my family's vote, and my village,” Tua'au-Glaude, a former delegate for President Obama at the 2008 Democratic National Convention and a former employee of the Department of Veterans Affairs, said about Bloomberg.
Bloomberg has invested heavily in the American territory, which is located in the South Pacific. The campaign said it has seven full-time staff located in American Samoa. They are also running television ads, targeted radio ads and targeted digital and print ads across the islands, according to the campaign.
The campaign has also organized an extensive voter registration drive ahead of the territory’s caucus on Tuesday, which will allocate six pledged delegates.
