PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – Oregon Sen. Jeff Merkley and Republican Monica Wehby are calling in big names to help their campaigns for the US Senate.
A Merkley spokesman said Wednesday that Vice President Joe Biden will host a rally Oct. 8 at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland. He’ll also host a private fundraiser.
Republican Sen. John McCain of Arizona will campaign for Wehby and raise money in Oregon on Oct. 2. A Wehby spokesman says the locations haven’t been made final.
Both events come shortly before voters begin receiving ballots for the Nov. 4 election.
