Trump campaign unveils first North Carolina offices

Posted September 14

— Donald Trump's campaign is unveiling its first offices in North Carolina with the help of his daughter-in-law, a Wilmington native.

Wednesday's events in Charlotte, Indian Trail and Huntersville highlight how campaign operations of the Republican presidential nominee contrast with those of Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.

Clinton's campaign has more than 30 offices statewide, many of which have been in place for months, along with extensive operations.

Trump North Carolina director Jason Simmons says levels of support shouldn't be based on the number of offices but upon grass-roots support. The Republican National Committee also is bringing in more paid staff to North Carolina above the 50 workers the RNC recently reported.

Lara Trump will be at the Trump campaign office openings. She's married to Trump's son, Eric.

    You know, Trump? If you're gonna talk tough, the least you can do is look the part. You look like a mass of spread out cookie dough.
