— Both major-party candidates for vice president are returning to North Carolina.

Democratic nominee Tim Kaine and Republican counterpart Mike Pence were both expected to make campaign stops in the state Wednesday. The Virginia senator was heading to Davidson College north of Charlotte for a late-afternoon North Carolina Democratic Party rally on campus. Pence was slated to attend an early-evening rally at a north Raleigh hotel.

Their visits continue a big week of political appearances in the presidential battleground state. President Barack Obama campaigned for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton on Tuesday evening in Greensboro. Republican Donald Trump has events scheduled Friday in Greensboro and Charlotte. And Pence — the Indiana governor — already was in North Carolina on Monday.
