Green Party candidate Jill Stein cancels visit to Portland due to illness

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein is cancelling an event in Portland on Sunday evening. Stein's campaign tells us she is ill.

Stein had planned to campaign at the Roseland Theater. Her campaign says she was to be joined by Seattle City Council member Kshama Sawant.

Stein is scheduled to speak in Washington state on Monday.

Polls show Stein is in fourth place in the presidential race both nationally and in Washington state. She's trailing Democrat Hillary Clinton, Republican Donald Trump and Libertarian Gary Johnson.

Her major issues include the push for a single-payer health-care system, a quick shift to renewable energy sources, a $15 national minimum wage, big cuts in military spending and free college education.
