North Carolina is a major battleground state in this year’s presidential election, and surrogates for both Clinton and her Republican counterpart Donald Trump have made several stops in the greater Wilmington area over the last few months. Trump held a rally at the University of North Carolina – Wilmington in August, and his vice presidential pick Mike Pence has made two stops in the area, including one last week.
Hillary Clinton’s running mate, former Virginia governor Tim Kaine, made a speech before a small crowd in downtown Wilmington in September. Hillary Clinton has yet to make a stop in Wilmington, North Carolina’s eighth-largest city, during this campaign.
