Hillary Clinton coming to Seattle for fundraiser

SEATTLE – Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is coming to Seattle next week for a fundraiser.

Seattle Theater Group is promoting “An Afternoon With Hillary Clinton” at the Paramount Theater on Friday, Oct. 14. The exact time has not been announced.

Ticket prices range from $250 for a seat in the balcony to $25,000. The high price grants you a photo opportunity with Clinton and preferred floor seating.

Clinton will not have open press availability or take interviews while she's in town according to a campaign spokesperson.

Republican nominee Donald Trump last visited the state in late August for a fundraiser and rally.

The news comes the same day as a Seattle Times report that shows some 99 percent of people who contributed to Bernie Sanders’ primary campaign are not contributing to anyone else since he dropped out.

The Times reports out of 24,700 Seattle residents who gave money to Sanders, just 261 have since given money to another candidate. Most of that has gone to Clinton with 20 giving money to Green Party nominee Jill Stein.

Political experts expect Clinton to win Washington state in November’s general election. Nate Silver's Fivethirtyeight.com gives Clinton a 94.8% chance to win the Evergreen State. 

Washington has not gone to a Republican since Ronald Reagan 1984.
