Republican vice presidential candidate Mike Pence will hold a rally on Wednesday in Raleigh – his second visit to North Carolina this week.
The rally is scheduled for 6 p.m. at the Hilton North Raleigh/Midtown on Wake Forest Road.
During a Charlotte campaign event on Monday, Pence said he’s still strongly supporting running mate Donald Trump despite audio of lewd remarks from 2005. He said he’s forgiven Trump because “we’re called to forgive as we’ve been forgiven.”
Trump’s next North Carolina appearance is a rally in Charlotte scheduled for Friday.
Pence will be in the state on the same day as his Democratic counterpart, Tim Kaine, who will be visiting Davidson College near Charlotte. His visit will come a day after President Barack Obama’s stop in Greensboro Tuesday to campaign for Hillary Clinton.
