      What do you mean about a tough future ?
      I was unsure, asked and was told by another it was Maine. I Googled to confirm and yes indeed it is Maine that is the closest state to Africa.
      ps, I am not totally dismissive of your answer. I sure some of your answers are correct.

      No, I thought it may be Florida but I can confirm after being told here that it was Maine.
      Of course you should Google so you can see you are wrong.

    Right -- Maine. Susan Collins says she can see Africa from her back porch.

    It appears to be Maine. Open google earth and measure using a circle.

    Yes, geographically speaking, Maine wins the designation of closest US state to Africa. A small peninsula off the coast of Maine, known as Quoddy Head, is a mere 3,154 miles from El Beddouza, Moroccan island,Africa
