CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WNCN) – Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton will return to North Carolina next week when she joins President Barack Obama in Charlotte.

The event will run from 3:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. at the Charlotte Convention Center on 501 South College Street.

Doors open at 1pm.

Clinton’s campaign says the two will discuss building on their achievements in the Obama administration. Clinton served as Secretary of State under Obama.

The appearance continues the heavy amount of attention North Carolina, a key swing state, is getting in the campaign. Trump recently appeared in Greensboro and Clinton came to Raleigh to pitch their ideas to Tar Heel voters.

Kara Carter, the North Carolina communications director for the Republican National Committee issued a statement after campaign event was announced.

“This event will be another reminder that all Hillary Clinton is offering are four more years of the same failed Obama policies that have made America less prosperous and less safe,” Carter said.

A poll released June 23 by Public Policy Polling found Clinton and Trump dead even at 43 percent in North Carolina. Bill Clinton lost North Carolina both times in the two times he was elected president.
