El estado de Massachusetts
Explanation:
If you say it any other way it's wrong. Puerto Rico is an actual Commonwealth of the US, yet it's not a state, whereas, Massachusetts is.

Thanks!

That was exactly what I was looking for. Familiar with the term Commonwealth for Puerto Rico, I knew it couldn't be used in the same way. I just needed to confirm I could leave "estado" all by itself.

Thanks, again!
