Week in Review: Candidates visit as election day looms

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – Over the past week, both presidential candidates and their supporters have been traveling across the state of North Carolina in an attempt to drum up support.

Donald Trump continued to question Hillary Clinton’s past and the FBI investigation into her.

“There are FBI inquiries probing virtually all of Hillary Clinton’s inner circle and many of the things she’s done over the years,” he said.

Trump made numerous stops in the state, including Wilmington and Raleigh.

Hillary Clinton was also a frequent flyer in the state. She made her first appearance in the East at a rally at Pitt Community College.

“It’s about any of us who don’t ever want us to go back to a time when you can officially discriminate, where people could be intimidated,” she said. “That is not who America is, and we’re not going to let it go back to that.”

While campaigning for Clinton in Raleigh, President Obama mentioned a story first brought to you by WNCT. It was about 100-year-old Grace Hardison of Belhaven, who had her voter registration challenged.

WNCT had our cameras rolling as she heard the president’s comments for the first time.

“To know that all these presidents and all these people think about you, and love you, means a whole lot,” Hardison said.

In sports news, the Cubs finally broke their curse, winning a world championship for the first time since 1908. It took seven games and extra innings for the Cubs to finally defeat the Cleveland Indians.

In the East, the Rangers announced the new team coming to Kinston will be named the Down East Wood Ducks.
