Map of US as a SVG file - how to merge groups of states

Hello experts:
I have a map of the United States as a SVG file.  I need to use SVG because I need the outline of the states to select them, etc., for my project.  What I want though is to merge several states into one "object", so that object is the selectable unit instead of each individual state.  So, I would like only the outline of the state group to be the object.  Is there any way to do this in Illustrator?  For example, all land-locked states of a group would not have an SVG outline, just the stroke.  Thanks.
