SEATTLE – Hillary Clinton is planning a visit to the Seattle area to raise money before the state’s Democratic caucuses.

The Seattle Times reported the fundraiser is set for March 22 at a yet-to-be disclosed location in Medina.

Clinton campaign spokeswoman Stephanie Formas says public events could be added to the schedule in the coming weeks. Clinton has yet to campaign publically in the state of Washington.

The state’s March 26 caucus will determine which candidate wins the bulk of the state’s 118 delegates to this summer’s Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, where the party will formally nominate its candidate for president.

A spokesman for Clinton’s opponent for the Democratic nomination, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, says Sanders likely will also visit Washington in the coming weeks.
