Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is scheduling another campaign foray to Washington state in the coming weeks.

While details and locations have not yet been finalized, Trump plans to visit the state at the end of August or early September, said state Sen. Doug Ericksen, R-Ferndale, deputy state director for the Trump campaign.

“We are putting together stuff. It will be multiple events,” Ericksen said Thursday.

The visit will include public rallies as well as private fundraisers. “It won’t be just a classic Obama ‘fly in take money fly out.’ He will definitely be doing events,” Ericksen said.

Trump has been sliding in recent polls against Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton following a series of controversies, including his attacks on the parents of a Muslim American soldier killed in Iraq.

Trump last visited Washington in May, holding rallies in Spokane and Lynden, Whatcom County.

His plans to return to the West Coast, which reportedly will also include stops in the Portland and San Francisco areas, were first reported by The Washington Post.
