CHARLOTTE, NC (AP) President Donald Trump is visiting North Carolina the night before next month's primary elections.

Trump's campaign announced on Friday that the president would attend a rally the evening of March 2 at Charlotte's Bojangles Coliseum. 

The president held rallies a few days before the presidential caucus in Iowa and the evening before the New Hampshire primary. 

Trump won North Carolina by almost 4 percentage points in the 2016 general election.

The state is expected to be a presidential battleground this November.

Trump came to Charlotte last week to highlight a new economic revitalization program.

The March 2nd rally will be held at 7:00 p.m.

Doors open for general admission at 3:00 p.m. You can register on the president's campaign website for up to 2 tickets, subject to first come first serve basis.
