Three of the four major Republican presidential candidates will be in Washington state Thursday and Friday seeking support in advance of the Washington caucuses on Saturday.

So far, Texas Rep. Ron Paul is the only one who has scheduled an appearance in Southwest Washington. He will hold a rally at 4 p.m. Friday at the Clark County Event Center in Ridgefield.

Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, coming off an easy win in Arizona and a narrow victory in Michigan, has long been scheduled to hold a $1,000-per-person fundraiser in Bellevue on Thursday evening.
