Clinton to visit Raleigh the day after 1st debate

Posted September 25, 2016

— Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton plans to visit North Carolina the day after her first debate with GOP contender Donald Trump.

The Clinton campaign says in a news release that the candidate will speak at a Democratic Party event Tuesday at Wake Technical Community College. She plans to speak about her economic proposals and that she says will help families.

The event will begin at 1 p.m. at the community college's physical education building.

An analysis by The Associated Press lists North Carolina as a toss-up state in the presidential election. It shows Clinton continues to hold advantages over Donald Trump in the states she would need to win the presidency in November but also that Trump has made gains in some battleground states.

Both Clinton and Trump had been scheduled to visit Charlotte but canceled those plans after the city's mayor requested that candidates stay away while the city deals with protests that followed the death of Keith Lamont Scott.

    The censorship from WRAL comments allowed on the Reverend Barber or the Charlotte story. No surprise about the first one, since Rev. Barber is wildly unpopular and draws negative comments.
