Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump will visit Fayetteville for an address on March 9.
The speech will be at 7 p.m at the 10,000-seat Crown Center Theatre, 1960 Coliseum Drive, Fayetteville.
North Carolina’s primary is March 15, and early voting will last from Thursday until March 12.
According to the Fayetteville Observer, the city attracted candidates Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and John McCain in 2008, but Trump is the first 2016 candidate to announce a trip to Fayetteville.
Never miss a local story.
Trump’s only other public visit to North Carolina as a candidate was in December at Raleigh’s Dorton Arena. It drew about 8,000 attendees and received national media attention.
