Vice presidential candidates visit North Carolina

FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (AP) - Campaign events by Mike Pence in eastern North Carolina begin three days of visits by vice presidential candidates leading to the start of early in-person voting in the battleground state.

Pence was scheduled to participate in two rallies Tuesday - one in Wilmington in the afternoon and another in Fayetteville in the evening. The Wilmington rally for the Republican nominee is set for a conference center along the Cape Fear River, with the Fayetteville event at a veteran-owned defense contracting business.

Democratic nominee Tim Kaine is expected to campaign with the state Democratic Party both on Wednesday and on Thursday, when early voting begins. Wednesday's early-vote event is in Asheville, with Thursday rallies slated for Charlotte and Durham.
