JACKSONVILLE, N.C. (AP) — Democrat Hillary Clinton’s bid for president brings big names to North Carolina in the final full work week of campaigning before Election Day, starting with running mate Tim Kaine.

The U.S. senator from Virginia scheduled rallies Monday in Jacksonville and Sanford. On Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden is slated to speak at a North Carolina Democratic Party early-vote rally at a Charlotte recreation center. Then President Barack Obama is heading to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill on Wednesday for a similar rally.

Celebrities also continue to visit the presidential battleground state for Clinton. “Girls” actress Lena Dunham was expected to wrap up two days of campaigning with a Monday morning event at UNC-Chapel Hill. And musician Ne-Yo (NEE’-yoh) is performing Tuesday evening at a Raleigh venue.
