CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) – President Donald Trump is visiting North Carolina the night before next month’s primary elections. Trump’s campaign announced on Friday that the president would attend a rally the evening of March 2 at Charlotte’s Bojangles Coliseum.
The president held rallies a few days before the presidential caucus in Iowa and the evening before the New Hampshire primary. Trump won North Carolina by almost 4 percentage points in the 2016 general election.
The state is expected to be a presidential battleground this November. Trump came to Charlotte last week to highlight a new economic revitalization program.
