Biggest Cities in Each State - No Repeating Counties

Can you name the four largest cities in each U.S. state - with a catch. Only the biggest city in a county can be used, the others in that county are excluded.
Cities that are in multiple counties 'use up' all of those counties. Cities in multiple counties that have just one county 'used up' cannot be used at all.
City proper, 2022 citypopulation.de estimates, some coordinates from https://simplemaps.com/data/world-cities
Incorporated places only, except for Hawaii and Rhode Island.
Delaware has three, because it only has three counties.

Interesting to see that some states are unaffected, whereas others (looking at you Arizona) skip 5+ cities!

Great idea! One issue: for Maine, the second largest city is misspelled in the quiz.
