Hawaii. The main complicating factors in Puerto Rico is there isn't an overwhelming desire for statehood among the residents there apparently, and there is a strong Republican presence there. The current representative to the US Congress from Puerto Rico Jenniffer González-Colón is a "lifelong Republican" and "González has served in leadership positions in the New Progressive Party of Puerto Rico (PNP) and in the Republican Party of the United States". There is no guarantee if Puerto Rico is admitted as a state that the 2 senators from there would end up being Democrats and this reduces the desire among some Democrats to push for Puerto Rico's statehood.
