Two groups of protesters showed up outside the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall on Tuesday night where former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton spoke.

Clinton’s speech was scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Protesters began showing up at Southwest Main and Broadway around 5:30 p.m.

The anti-Hillary Patriot Prayer group protested what they call Clinton’s buying out of the DNC and stealing the election from Bernie Sanders.

A group calling themselves Northwest Stands Against Patriot Prayer held a counter protest, saying the Patriot Prayer group's members are white supremacists spreading hate speech.

A significant police presence was observed at the venue.

Things have so far been peaceful.
