First Lady Jill Biden to visit Western Washington Friday

First Lady Jill Biden will spend a couple days visiting the Seattle-Tacoma area Friday and Saturday.

The first lady's schedule states she will arrive Friday afternoon in King County.

She's making stops to discuss community colleges, celebrate the children of military and veterans, and attend a fundraiser for U.S. Sen. Patty Murray.

Biden will first stop at Bates Technical College in Tacoma on Friday afternoon to discuss workforce development programs in technical careers.

On Saturday, the First Lady will attend an undisclosed fundraising event for Sen. Murray at noon.

She will then head to the Pacific Science Center to meet military families — the stop is for the Hidden Helpers Coalition (Elizabeth Dole Foundation and the Wounded Warrior Project), which benefits military children and families.

She'll be joined Saturday by Sen. Murray, who is up for election, and U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Secretary Denis McDonough.
