Trump’s campaign named three hosts for his Portland, OR event, but when their names became public they disavowed him, and the event was canceled because of a “scheduling conflict.”

Jacob Daniels, Trump’s Oregon campaign director, told OPB that Trump cancelled the event because he wants to tour the flooding in Louisiana. But the candidate’s Aug. 30 fundraiser in Seattle is still on—and its organizer, former Washington state Sen. Don Benton, sent out a new invitation this morning.

WW reported two weeks ago that the hosts of that Seattle event included three prominent Portland businessmen: Gordon Sondland, Peter Stott, and Bashir Wali.


When their names became public, all three Portlanders disavowed Trump—and the Pacific Northwest’s biggest Mitt Romney fundraiser, David Nierenberg, endorsed Hillary Rodham Clinton.
