SEATTLE (AP) - Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s Washington state campaign team says he will visit the state Saturday for two public rallies before the state’s primary election May 24.

The Seattle Times reports (https://goo.gl/vcVWTl ) Trump will hold rallies in Spokane and Lynden, a small town about 100 miles north of Seattle near the Canadian border.

The first rally will take place at noon Saturday at the Spokane Convention Center with doors opening to the public at 9 a.m.

Sen. Doug Ericksen of Ferndale, who is part of Trump’s state campaign team, told the Times Trump will hold an afternoon event at the Northwest Washington Fairgrounds in Lynden. Ericksen says a contract has yet to be finalized with the fairgrounds.

Republicans will use the results of the primary election to allocate the state’s 44 delegates, but with no other candidates, Trump is the party’s presumptive presidential nominee.
