Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has canceled her campaign appearance at Raleigh’s Broughton High School that was planned for Thursday.

She still will be at Hillside High School in Durham at 3:50 p.m. Thursday as planned.

Clinton’s campaign said she is flying to California to attend former First Lady Nancy Reagan’s funeral. Reagan’s funeral is Friday at 2 p.m., and the schedule had to be adjusted to accommodate that cross-country trip, Clinton’s campaign said.

Clinton’s stop in the state comes a few days after her husband, former President Bill Clinton, made a campaign swing through the state for her, hitting Raleigh, Greensboro, and Charlotte.

North Carolina’s primary is March 15. The early voting period is ongoing and ends Saturday, March 12.

Clinton faces Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders in the primary.
