(Honolulu-AP) -- The three-day Hawaii Democratic Convention wraps up in Waikiki today with the scheduled to elect a new chairman.
Yesterday, former Democratic presidential candidate Howard Dean rallied one-thousand applauding and cheering Hawaii Democrats, telling them he's still doing everything in his power "to change the presidency."
The former Vermont governor levied a stream of accusations against the Republican administration.
He made it clear he's fully behind presumptive Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry, saying, "This is about sending George Bush back to Crawford , Texas ."
Dean focused his opening attack on Bush's role in the war in Iraq which Dean opposed from the outset.
He also criticized the Bush administration on various other issues. Dean announced that his new advocacy group, Democracy for America , soon will be supporting state Democrats in their races challenging Republican incumbents.
He said the group probably will list its first local Hawaii endorsements within three weeks, based on recommendations from Hawaii party officials.
