Clinton, Kaine target on NC voters on eve of Election Day

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- On the eve of Election Day, democrats are spending their final campaign moments here in the Tar Heel state.

Hillary Clinton herself is expected to speak at her final campaign event in Raleigh Monday night at midnight, wrapping just minutes into Election Day.

“Every single solitary vote matters,” said former president Bill Clinton in Greensboro Monday, speaking in support of his wife. In his words, the only choice to bring America together.

“Yes, we are stronger together. Yes, love does trump hate,” said Bill Clinton.

And here in Charlotte, Hillary Clinton’s running mate, Tim Kaine, made the final push to get North Carolinians to the polls.

“If Hillary wins in North Carolina, take it the bank, she’s president of the United States,” said Kaine.

Speaking just across the street from the federal immigration court, Kaine touted his running mate as a candidate who fights for families and equal rights for all.

“We are making a choice in this race between embracing a stronger together, one nation, indivisible view of this country,” he said.

An outlook Angelique Ramirez says she came to hear. Ramirez is from Stateville, but her husband and the father of their two children is Mexican. Under current law, he could be deported and barred from getting his green card for a decade.

It’s tearing people’s families apart -- it's not helping,” said Ramirez. “This is America, where our kids can live a better life, get their education, be something in life.”

It’s a law Hillary says she would try to repeal.

“Working for children and families has been the cause of my life, but its never been more important than it is right now,” Clinton said in her final campaign ad released Monday.

In the two-minute video, Clinton makes one final push in hopes of making history.

“History changes in that instant because people who have never been able to see themselves as president of the United States, the moment that she is called as the winner, will say, 'I can be president of the United States, and if I can be president of the United States, I can be anything,'” Kaine said."
