The Associated Press

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Hillary Clinton will make a stop in Oregon next month to raise money for her presidential campaign.

An invitation shows the fundraiser will be held Aug. 5 at the Portland home of Democratic Party insiders Win McCormack and Carol Butler. The event is dubbed "Conversation with Hillary."

Clinton was in Portland in 2014 for a speech to the World Affairs Council.

McCormack is a magazine publisher and major donor to Oregon Democrats. He supported Barack Obama in the 2008 Democratic presidential primary. Butler is a political consultant who has worked for the campaigns of several Democrats, including Sen. Ron Wyden and U.S. Rep. Suzanne Bonamici.
