PORTLAND – Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has canceled an Aug. 31 rally and fundraiser in Portland.
Oregon Public Broadcasting reported 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.
Washington state Republican Sen. Don Benton said Trump is still planning to attend a fundraiser in Seattle on Aug. 30.
Washington and Oregon haven’t voted for a Republican presidential nominee since President Ronald Reagan in 1984.
