Linda McMahon, head of Small Business Administration, to visit Portland

PORTLAND, Ore. – Linda McMahon, President Donald Trump’s pick to head the U.S. Small Business Administration in his Cabinet, will stop in Portland next week to tour several local businesses.

McMahon will visit the Portland area on Tuesday, July 18.

The former professional wrestling executive and nominee for the U.S. Senate will visit Bob’s Red Mill in Milwaukie, then head to Portland for stops at Salt & Straw, Coava Coffee Roasters, Zilla Sake, Pine State Biscuits and Bishop’s Barbershop.

McMahon is on a nationwide tour called “SBA Ignite,” where she will “listen, educate and highlight the role of small business in economic growth,” according to a news release from her press office.

She will visit Seattle and Alaska after leaving Portland.

McMahon and her husband Vince founded World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) in 1979.

Salt & Straw has been a popular stop for several prominent national figures in recent years. In 2015, then-Vice President Joe Biden stopped in at the ice cream parlor.
