DURHAM, N.C. (WNCN) — As many people flock to early voting in North Carolina and Election Day nears, Democratic Presidential candidate Joe Biden is heading to North Carolina this weekend, his campaign said Friday afternoon.
The former vice president will visit Durham early Sunday afternoon, the announcement said.
The Durham event is designed to “urge North Carolinians to make their plan to vote early during the state’s in-person early voting period, which ends October 31,” the Biden campaign news release said.
President Donald Trump will be back in the state next week, making a campaign stop in Gastonia.
The Trump campaign announced that the president will visit on Wednesday, Oct. 21 and is expected to deliver remarks at 7 p.m.
Trump was in Greenville Thursday where he held a rally at the Pitt-Greenville Airport. The visit came 13 days after he and First Lady Melania Trump tested positive for the coronavirus.
