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?
And what what about U.S. congressmen? They actually have only to campaign for their respective primaries. But how do they do this? And what if Hawaii were a swing state? Their challengers would have a leg-up on the incumbent.

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

Nixon visited every state during his 1960 campaign, this is often seen as contributing to his loss since he didn't focus enough on the swing states.

That must have been even more expensive back then. how much does it cost to travel and canvass there with the whole campaign crew?

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

And how do the congressmen from Hawaii canvass in their home state? Do they get extra allowance?

How does Colleen Hanabusa campaign in Hawaii?
How often is she flying to her home state?
I guess once she wins the nomination for governor in August, she's gonna stay in Hawaii?
