That's what the scrolling news says at powerball.com

I certainly don't want to see DC become our 51st state!

    I sure hope that it wasn't won by one of our corrupt politicians.

      Why does it matter if the District of Columbia become a state?

        It's not a state, just the site is/was listing it as one because they use a template and just fill in the location.

        You can't predict random.

          Because our Constitution was designed so that the center of our government was not part of one of the states being represented.  Balance of power, and all that stuff. None of the states wanted one state to house the Federal government.
