Cheney Hunts for Votes in Hawaii on Election Eve
Vice President Dick Cheney asked voters in Hawaii on Sunday to help stage a Republican upset that would give President Bush the traditionally Democratic state's four Electoral College votes in Tuesday's tight election battle.
"I was in the neighborhood and thought I'd stop by and say, Aloha," a smiling Cheney, wearing a brightly colored lei, told thousands of raucous supporters at a late night rally in Honolulu.
"Hawaii is a vital state in this election and President Bush and I would be honored to have your vote," the vice president added.
"It doesn't matter which party you belong to, or who you have voted for in the past. We're asking for your support."
