PRESIDENT PLANS TO VISIT OREGON IN AUGUST
President Bush plans to visit Oregon next month, Molly Bordonaro, regional chairwoman for Bush's re-election campaign, said Thursday.
Details of the Aug. 21 trip have not been worked out, said Bordonaro, a campaign consultant with the Gallatin Group in Portland.
"There will be fund-raising component," she said. "Beyond that, it hasn't been determined."
Bush will stop in the state before traveling to Seattle the next day, Bordonaro said.
The president has made several trips to Oregon since he was elected. The last visit was about a year ago when he visited the Squire Peak fire site and flew over the Biscuit fire during a Southern Oregon trip to unveil his Healthy Forest Initiative.
High-level members of the administration, including Attorney General John Ashcroft and Secretary of Homeland Security Tom Ridge, have been visiting West Coast cities this week and last, suggesting the Bush campaign's strong interest in the region. -- Harry Esteve
