RALEIGH – President Donald Trump will make stops in consecutive days in North Carolina before the Nov. 3 election, visiting Hickory on Sunday, Nov. 1 and Fayetteville on Monday, Nov. 2 in a makeup of Thursday’s cancelled rally in Cumberland County.

The visits are part of a dizzying travel schedule for the President, who is expected to make 14 total stops from Saturday through Monday in North Carolina as well as Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Michigan, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.

Former Vice President Joe Biden is poised to spend most his time in Florida and the Midwest, according to his campaign. Biden and former President Barack Obama will headline a rally in Michigan on Saturday.

California Sen. Kamala Harris, Biden’s running mate, is set to visit North Carolina on Sunday as well. Harris is scheduled to visit Goldsboro and Fayetteville, but details have not been published by the campaign as of Friday afternoon.

An NSJ/CPA poll released on Friday showed Trump leading Biden by two points in the state.
