Campaigning in Hawaii is quite easy for a gubernatorial candidate (or for another statewide office).
But what about incumbent congressmen? Or presidential caucus candidates? Or presidential nominees (if Hawaii were a swing state)?
Well, the last case is quite obsolete for Hawaii, as it is as blue as the ocean, which embraces the state.
But if Hawaii had, let's say, 10 electoral votes and if it were at least Minnesota-blue, would any presidential nominees fly there in order to campaign?

It's too far away if you don't live near a major air hub.  pbrower tried to warn us about this.

Has a presidential nominee or a caucus candidate ever canvassed in Hawaii? I think even Obama visited "all 57 states" but neither Hawaii nor Alaska. LOL

Gingrich campaigned there in 2011, but it was a thinly veiled excuse to have his campaign pay for a wedding anniversary trip with his wife:
