Trump cancels Portland trip; Seattle still scheduled
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has canceled an Aug. 31 rally and fundraiser in Portland.
Oregon Public Broadcasting reports that Trump's Oregon campaign director, Jacob G. Daniels, said the candidate's recent trip to visit flood-ravaged areas in Louisiana prompted scheduling changes and forced the cancellation of the Oregon trip.
OBP reported Trump and Governor Mike Pence, Trump's running mate, will head to Oregon at a "later date."
Washington Republican State Sen. Don Benton said Trump is still planning to attend a Seattle fundraiser in Seattle on Aug. 30.
Washington and Oregon haven't voted for a Republican presidential nominee since President Ronald Reagan in 1984.
