Both VP Nominees Scheduled for NC Visits

Democratic vice presidential nominee Tim Kaine is slated to deliver what Hillary Clinton's campaign calls a "major national security address" next week in North Carolina.

The Clinton campaign announced the speech would occur in Wilmington on Tuesday but didn't immediately have more location details Thursday. A campaign release says the U.S. senator from Virginia would emphasize Clinton's credentials to be commander in chief and her vision to "make America safer and stronger together."

Kaine last visited North Carolina in Asheville for public campaign events two weeks ago.

Meanwhile, Mike Pence can't seem to get enough of North Carolina.

The Republican vice presidential candidate will hold a town hall meeting Saturday in Fayetteville. That's according to his travel schedule on Donald Trump's campaign web site.

Pence visited Winston-Salem on Tuesday and last week was in Charlotte and the Wilmington area. He has made several other appearances in the presidential battleground state since becoming Trump's running mate in July.

Trump's web site says the Pence event will be at 2 p.m. Saturday at Fayetteville's Crown Complex.
