PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Former President Bill Clinton was in Portland after visiting Bend to campaign for his wife and Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton.

His Thursday afternoon Portland visit drew hundreds of people near downtown, marking his second Oregon campaign stop ahead of the state’s May 17 primary.

Hillary Clinton so far hasn’t made a campaign stop in Oregon, where she’s clinched several of the state’s 13 superdelegates, although support for her opponent Bernie Sanders is strong in Oregon. Sanders came to the state for a third time last week.

Bill Clinton’s Thursday visit comes the day before presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump’s rally in Eugene, which will be his first campaign appearance in Oregon.
