IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (AP) - Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina says she’s coming to eastern Idaho for a campaign event.

Fiorina will hold a brief town hall with Melaleuca employees in Idaho Falls on Wednesday.

The health products company is owned by CEO Frank VanderSloot, who is a GOP mega-donor. VanderSloot has previously listed Fiorina as one the presidential candidates he is favoring.

GOP candidates have been eager to secure VanderSloot’s backing because of his successful fundraising reputation.

Other Republican presidential candidates who have visited Idaho this year include former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, U.S Sens. Marco Rubio from Florida and Rand Paul from Kentucky.
