MONROE La. (KNOE 8 News/CNN) - Supporters in Hawaii are pushing for President Obama to set up his Presidential library there.

According to the New York Times, Governor Neil Abercrombie has joined a statewide campaign to help make that happen. The Times reports an eight-acre plot of land in Honolulu has already been set aside for the project.

President Obama was born and raised in Hawaii, but the state may have some competition. Before heading to the White House, the President made his home in Chicago.
