Presidential candidates are focusing on Washington state this week. Republican candidate Ron Paul arrives in Western Washington today and will make several stops ahead of President Obama's visit Friday.
With only two weeks before the Republican caucus in Washington state, candidates are turning their attention on Western Washington. On Monday, Rick Santorum was campaigning in the South Sound. Ron Paul is making his way to Seattle and will hold a rally with supporters Thursday night at the Double Tree Hotel.
Ron Paul is in Idaho Thursday morning. He's heading to Vancouver, Wash., Thursday afternoon for a rally. From there, the Texas congressman will stop at SeaTac for another rally at the Double Tree Hotel, scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Ron Paul heads to the Tri-Cities on Friday.
On Friday, President Obama will be making several stops in Western Washington. Air Force One touches down at Paine Field in Everett. The president plans to tour Boeing's plant, where he's expected to talk about domestic manufacturing and promote American exports.
The president then heads to two fundraisers in Medina and Bellevue. The brunch in Medina will be at the home of the co-founder of Costco. The cost to attend is nearly $18,000 per person.
