CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

For those of you on the fence, or just interested in what some of the people running for president have to say, four candidates are making their way to the Charlotte area in the next two days in hopes of winning your vote.

The push to the primary started with Ted Cruz in Concord. Cruz headlined a rally at zMAX Dragway Sunday in Concord. He was introduced by former GOP candidate Carly Fiorina. 

It was there that he said he was "effectively tied" with GOP frontrunner, Donald Trump. He also mentioned his other running mates saying Marco Rubio and John Kasich were "good honorable people" but they "can't beat Trump."

Monday, Republican candidate Donald Trump and Democrats Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders are making a final push for votes in North Carolina.

Trump starts the day's political events with a morning rally in Hickory at Lenoir-Rhyne University.
