Hotline / GUAM (5/3 CAUCUSES)

Gather 'Round The Coconut Radio

May 2, 2008

"For proof of the intense, leave-no-stone-unturned race for delegates" in the primary, "look no further than Guam," where both camps "are mounting unprecedented efforts." 4 delegates are at stake in Guam's 5/3 caucuses. Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama are running TV ads "on Guam-centric issues and the candidates" and Bill Clinton "have called into radio stations to press their cases."

"The candidates differ little on issues facing the island territory, so campaign organization could shape the outcome. Both candidates are promoting their personal ties to the island as a result." Clinton and B. Clinton "are reminding voters about their multiple visits to Guam during stopovers on presidential trips to Asia" in the '90s. Obama "is pointing to his upbringing in Hawaii and Indonesia."

Obama has opened a campaign office and has 3 paid staffers "with personal ties to the island." Obama won the HI caucus in Feb. 76% to 24% (Timiraos, Wall Street Journal, 5/2).
