CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WNCN) – Donald Trump is returning to North Carolina with a planned campaign event Thursday in Charlotte.

Trump will speak at the Charlotte Convention Center, located at 501 S. College Street.

The event is scheduled to begin at 7:30 p.m.

This comes at a time when some conservatives are considering to focus their energy on moving forward to down-ballot races and less on the presidential race.

“Both candidates are incredibly unpopular,” Andy Taylor, North Carolina State political science professor said. “So the best thing that Trump can do is to try to make the race more about Hillary Clinton than him.  And everything that has happened since the conventions is to force attention on Trump.”

CBS North Carolina will provide details to the Charlotte rally as information becomes available.

Trump has stopped in North Carolina several times since becoming the Republican nominee.

In late July, he campaigned in Winston-Salem before speaking to the VFW in Charlotte on July 26.

He made two stops in North Carolina August 9 when he spoke in Wilmington and then Fayetteville.

“I’ll be back so much to North Carolina cause this is very important. You’re going to get so sick and tired of me,” Trump said in Fayetteville.
