Mary C. Curtis: Presidential Campaign Visits

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — With presidential campaign visits, Charlotte is the center of a political universe.

If you did not already realize it, now it’s clear that North Carolina and Charlotte will be crucial in the November elections — actually before then, as early voting starts soon and mail-in ballots are already going out.

Both President Donald Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden will be visiting Charlotte this week — Biden on Wednesday and President Trump on Thursday. Family members and surrogates, both in person and virtually, have already visited the state — which holds 15 electoral votes and battleground status. (Mary C. Curtis)
