As QM says below, he considers the Chesapeake Bay to be part of the Atlantic Ocean. (Marylanders would disagree, but it's his site, so we follow his rules.)
The closest point from Lincoln to the Gulf of Mexico is in Tirana Bay, at 764.09 miles (1,229.68 km).
The closest point from Bismarck to the Hudson Bay is at the mouth of the Hayes River, at 795.28 miles (1,279.88 km).
So, that summarizes that Lincoln and Bismarck are NOT valid.
However Lansing is the capital of Michigan so Detroit doesn't belong on the quiz!
Reason I ask is because when we talk about metro areas, there are a couple state capitals that are part of larger metro areas that include cities from other states (Tallahassee come to mind, but I'm sure there are others).
Carson City is one of two state capitals that border another state, the other being Trenton, New Jersey.
