GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) North Carolina is a battleground state in the presidential race.
The Biden-Harris campaign has that in mind with Jill Biden’s visit to our state.
“This is too important. We have to do every single thing we can,” said Jill Biden, presidential candidate Joe Biden’s wife.
Four weeks from Election Day, and the campaigns are making one thing clear, ENC voters matter.
“Eastern North Carolina is critical and we don’t want to have people to overlook us because there’s a lot going on in the East,” said Representative Kandie Smith, district 8.
Dr. Jill Biden, wife of democratic nominee Joe Biden, led a rally in Winterville Tuesday, focusing on the future of our country.
“We have to show them that we’re not going to sit by and watch what happens, we’re going to decide what happens,” said Biden.
Biden talked about pillars of her husband’s campaign, affordable education and health care.
She also called for voters to be part of getting the country back on track.
“I feel like we are divided,” said Paula Dubay, a voter. “Our country, the past four years, has really made a big change in the wrong direction.”
Voters say the only way to make a change is to listen and vote.
“Every single vote matters,” said Karen Poole. “Every person really needs to educate themselves and put themselves out there and realize that they have to contribute to a better future.”
Others at Tuesday’s even called on voters to remember the local side of the election, and the importance of smaller races on the ballot.
Dr. Biden finished the day with a campaign stop in Fayetteville, talking with veterans and military families.
