20 delegates at stake in Hawaii contest

HONOLULU (AP) -- Democratic party officials in Hawaii are predicting a heavy turnout in today's presidential caucuses. Twenty delegates are at stake in the tight race between Senators Barack Obama and Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Obama's half-sister has been making daily appearances for her brother, while Chelsea Clinton spent the weekend in Hawaii to push her mother's candidacy.

Chelsea Clinton visited the University of Hawaii, where a political science professor says she can't recall the state ever getting this much attention from national candidates.

Obama was born in Hawaii and graduated from one of its high schools. However, Clinton has the support of labor unions and Hawaii Senator Daniel Inouye (ih-NOH'-way).
