Obama stumps for Clinton at Chapel Hill rally

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (WNCT) – President Barack Obama focused on early voting at a UNC-Chapel Hill rally Wednesday afternoon.

Thousands attended the rally, and most of the crowd consisted of millennials.

Obama said every vote counts and told supporters “America is great,” citing Clinton as the only option to continue the country’s current track.

“Twenty million more people have health insurance who didn’t have it before,” Obama said.

Obama briefly spoke about Donald Trump but never mentioned him by name.

North Carolina candidates gubernatorial and senatorial candidates Roy Cooper and Deborah Ross attended the rally to show their support for Clinton.

Obama has two additional stops this week.

He’ll be in Fayetteville and Charlotte Friday.
