American Samoa Republicans ready to caucus, at bar
Republican presidential politics on menu at American Samoa caucus _ in restaurant-bar
By The Associated Press

PAGO PAGO, American Samoa (AP) ' What do you get when 50 or so Republicans gather in a restaurant-bar? In American Samoa, you get a presidential caucus.

The U.S. territory, located about 2,300 miles (3,700 kilometers) south of Hawaii, gets its chance Tuesday to participate in the presidential selection process.

Republicans will meet at Toa Bar & Grill, choose delegates to the Republican National Convention in August and vote on a presidential candidate. The six delegates picked at the caucus will join three American Samoa "superdelegates" at the convention.



Only registered Republicans can vote in the caucus, and that's why so few attend. It's rare in American Samoa for anyone to officially register as a Republican or Democrat because local elected officials don't run on party lines.
