The census shapefile import missed many multipolygon districts (disjointed
areas, mostly on the coast), so it does not look like you can create a
complete state boundary shape using the data in osm. You should instead try
the naturalearthdata  or the orginal ECI/Census shapefiles .
The accuracy of all the datasets looks questionable as the borders dont
exactly overlap. I have been hoping that better shapefiles would be released
from the census 2011 dataset, but there's no sign of it till now.
