CHARLOTTE, N.C. — President Donald Trump will be hosting a Keep America Great Rally in Charlotte the night before next month’s primary elections.
Trump’s campaign announced on Friday that the president would attend a rally at the Bojangles Coliseum on Monday, March 2 at 7 p.m. Doors will open at 3 p.m. for general admission.
Trump will be on the GOP presidential preference ballot in North Carolina and other Super Tuesday states March 3. So will the Democratic presidential hopefuls, along with candidates for governor, U.S. Senate and House and scores of down ballot races.
The president held rallies a few days before the presidential caucus in Iowa and the evening before the primary in New Hampshire.
Trump won North Carolina by almost 4 percentage points in the 2016 general election. The state is expected to be a presidential battleground this November, too.
“President Trump’s conservative economic policies have fundamentally transformed the state of North Carolina, creating 219,000 jobs since he was elected,” Michael Glassner, Chief Operating Officer of Donald J. Trump for President, Inc said in a news release. “The President promised to bring an economic revival across the nation and looks forward to celebrating America’s successes with the great people of North Carolina.”
Trump came to Charlotte last week to highlight a new economic revitalization program.
