I think there is one remote island of Alaska that is technically west of the international date line and thus is the first part of the US to begin each day. But that's stupid so Maine all the way.

No, even though they are in the Eastern Hemisphere the Date Line goes around them so they’re in the same time zone as the rest of Alaska.

I realized I was thinking of Guam. They are west of the date line so I guess it depends on whether you include territories or not.
