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.

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

No.  I have a friend who worked as a scheduler/executive assistant for a Hawaiian congressman.  The member traveled to his district less frequently than other members of Congress, and Hawaiian congressmen rely much more heavily on their district staff than most others.
