A week after President Trump’s visit to the city, Sanders will be at the Blumenthal Performing Arts Center at 3:30 p.m. on Friday. It’s open to the public.
With early voting in North Carolina set to begin Thursday, presidential candidates Sen. Bernie Sanders and billionaire Michael Bloomberg have announced visits to the state this week.
Building on growing momentum in the polls, Bloomberg will visit Raleigh, Greensboro and Winston-Salem Thursday to make his pitch to Democratic voters.
Sanders, who is leading in a recent national poll, will visit Durham and Charlotte on Friday.
North Carolina is one of the “Super Tuesday” primary states that Bloomberg’s campaign has decided to focus on. Sanders and most of the other Democrats, however, have been targeting the earlier primary states such as Iowa and New Hampshire.
But with the Iowa caucuses over and the New Hampshire primary on Tuesday, states like North Carolina will soon start receiving more attention. North Carolina’s primary is March 3.
