It looks to me like Washington is closer than Oregon.

Google Earth appears to disagree with you. Using Google Earth's measurement tool I get 6944 miles to Washington and 7115 miles to Oregon.

Google Maps also appears to disagree with you. Using Google Maps' measurement tool I get 6930 miles to Washington and 7069 miles to Oregon.

The geodesics passing through New Delhi come in almost from due north in the U.S. Pacific Northwest, so how could the more southern state (Oregon) possibly be closer?

Neil, you accidentally measured DC, instead of Washington state. Washington state is actually 4th place on this list, at 7039

I think this one should be featured because it incorporates states from multiple regions instead of states from the same area.

Beware for a lot of takes coming in. I learned the hard way that linking a quiz in the comments of a quiz that got featured. I got roughly thirty takes when that happened with my true or false quizzes. Why is that bad you ask? Because I don't want them to drown out my SVG quizzes. Anyways, I like this one and nominated.
