CHARLOTTE, NC (Cleve R Wootson Jr/The Charlotte Observer) -

Presidential candidate Senator Ted Cruz is holding a Tuesday rally in Kannapolis at 5 p.m.

The event comes a day after both Donald Trump and former president Bill Clinton were in the region campaigning in advance of North Carolina’s March 15 primary.

Cruz’s event starts at 5 p.m. at Central Baptist Church, 1810 Moose Road in Kannapolis. Online registration is still open, but seating is limited so attendees are encouraged to arrive early.

In Charlotte on Monday, a crowd of several hundred students, faculty and community members greeted former president Clinton in front of Biddle Hall at Johnson C. Smith University as he campaigned for his wife, Hillary.

In Concord, Republican Donald Trump spoke for 40 minutes to more than 4,000 supporters at the Cabarrus Arena & Events center.

Early voting has already started in North Carolina and goes until Saturday. The primary election is March 15.
