GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – Hillary Clinton will make a stop in eastern Carolina Thursday.

Greenville mayor Allen Thomas tells WNCT that Clinton will rally voters at a campaign stop at Pitt Community College. Winterville Police Chief Ryan Willhite also confirmed the stop.

The Secret Service canvassed the area on Tuesday ahead of the visit, and Willhite met with Secret Service agents again on Wednesday.

Doors open for the event at 1:15 p.m. It’s happening at the Edward and Joan Warren Building on the Pitt Community College campus located at 4302 Reedy Branch Road in Winterville. The early vote event with Clinton takes place at 3:15 p.m.

Pitt Community College’s administrative services vice president Rick Owens said he has been told about 2,000 people are expected to show.

“I think it is a benefit to the community and a benefit to the college,” Owens said. “It gets PCC’s name out there a little bit and gives us some recognition and hopefully gets our students involved in the process.”

Clinton’s stop follows appearances by both Bill Clinton and Chelsea Clinton as well as running mate Tim Kaine.
