President Obama Makes Northwest Swing

By Jim McCoy Tue 24th July NewsPoliticsPresident Obama

President Barack Obama has arrived in Oregon to raise money for his re-election campaign. His plane touched down about 11:30 a.m. Tuesday in north Portland at the base for the 142nd Fighter Wing of the Oregon Air National Guard. Obama planned a private fundraiser at the convention center in Portland Tuesday afternoon. He scrapped plans for a "grassroots event" for supporters.

 Among a few dozen supporters awaiting Obama was his brother-in-law, Oregon State basketball coach Craig Robinson, who got a presidential hug.

Obama is scheduled to depart for Seattle by the evening.
