Why are the news nets playing up American Samoa's primary votes but not other territories?

Don't Puerto Rico, Guam, the Northern Marianas, and US Virgins have presidential primaries? Is this part of a push to make Samoa a state? Note that I am of an imperialistic bend and think that would be wicked cool. Can we make the others states, too?

[Aside] My brother used to be the Attorney General of the Northern Marianas (a big $25k/year) and thinks they want a split statehood with the U.S. and Japan. And that manufacturers don't like statehood because they can put on a made in the USA label while avoiding paying minimum wage. [/Aside]
