Kaine plans Fayetteville stop

RALEIGH (AP) — Democratic vice presidential nominee Tim Kaine is coming to North Carolina for a pair of events early next week to talk up running mate Hillary Clinton’s economic plan and how they believe it will benefit the presidential battleground state if they’re elected.

Clinton’s team announced that Kaine and his wife will campaign Monday in Asheville and Tuesday in Fayetteville. Other details weren’t immediately released Thursday.

The visit by the Virginia senator is yet another by the major-party candidates designed to build support and sway voters to ultimately help them win North Carolina’s 15 electoral votes. Republican Donald Trump visited Wilmington and Fayetteville earlier this week. Kaine and Trump vice presidential pick Mike Pence held separate events in North Carolina last week.
