States That Beat Puerto Rico

For each category, name any U.S. State that ranks higher than Puerto Rico, Have Fun!
*In lieu of presidential election results, congressional results are used. (Puerto Rico elects their congressional delegate every 4 years anyway, so that doesn't make a difference.)
**The 50 states are statewide, but Puerto Rico's is for San Juan airport, so it isn't a completely fair comparison, but it's the best I can do.

For the record, yes, this is a sequel to "States That Beat Canada". Maybe I'll make this a tradition, who knows.
