CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — President Donald Trump is visiting North Carolina the night before next month's primary elections.

Trump's campaign announced on Friday that the president would attend a rally the evening of March 2 at Charlotte's Bojangles Coliseum.

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.

Trump came to Charlotte last week to highlight a new economic revitalization program.
