North Carolina Rep. Patrick McHenry and his Democratic challenger Daniel Johnson are making their pitches to a pool of unaffiliated and undecided voters.
The two congressional candidates will address 10th District voters Saturday morning in downtown Hickory. Republican gubernatorial candidate Pat McCrory also is slated to attend although his opponent, Lt. Gov. Beverly Perdue, will not be there.
McHenry is seeking his third term in the largely rural western North Carolina district. Johnson is a Hickory native who moved back to the district to try to win McHenry's seat.
Voters in the blue-collar district have long sided with Republican congressional candidates.
