White House bids wind into NCarolina on Election Day eve

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — It’s the last hours before Election Day and North Carolina is awash in high-profile candidates stumping for votes.

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is scheduled to appear Monday afternoon at an arena on the State Fairgrounds in Raleigh. It’s a rally wedged between stops in similar battleground states of Florida, Pennsylvania, Michigan and New Hampshire.

Democratic vice presidential nominee Tim Kaine campaigns Monday in Charlotte and Wilmington. Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton closes out her campaign rallies with one last stop in Raleigh. She speaks at a midnight rally ending in the first minutes of Election Day on the campus of North Carolina State University.

Democratic Party gubernatorial candidate Roy Cooper plans to attend all three rallies Monday with Kaine and Clinton.
