Kucinich Finishes Strong in Hawaii

Longshot Democratic presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich (search) has had his best showing so far in a state contest.

John Kerry (search) easily won the Hawaii caucuses last night, while Kucinich finished second. John Edwards came in third.

Kucinich was helped by a recent visit to Hawaii. Kerry and Kucinich were the only two on the ballot to pick up delegates to the national convention.

Kucinich made whirlwind campaign stops in Oahu and Maui on Sunday. He had an especially strong finish in Maui.
