Democratic vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine will campaign Wednesday at Davidson College, two days before a planned rally for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.

Kaine is expected to urge voters to take advantage of early voting, which starts Oct. 20.

The event will be at 5 p.m. at Davidson College, Chambers Hall Lawn. Members of the public can RSVP for the Kaine event at http://hrc.io/2edDiUv.

Republican vice presidential nominee Mike Pence will campaign in Charlotte on Monday.

The campaign visits keep North Carolina – and Charlotte in particular – as ground zero for the presidential campaign. Trump trails Democrat Hillary Clinton by an average of 2.6 points, according to Real Clear Politics. The state is viewed as a must-win for Trump.

Last Sunday, Clinton visited Charlotte, where she addressed congregants of Little Rock AME Zion, a historic black church. And Tuesday first lady Michelle Obama held campaign rallies for Clinton in Charlotte and Raleigh.

President Barack Obama will campaign for Clinton on Tuesday in Greensboro.

Trump will return to Charlotte for a Friday night rally at PNC Music Pavilion. The event will start at 7 p.m., with gates opening at 4 p.m.

His visit follows the disclosure of video that included vulgar comments he made about women in 2005. On Saturday, Trump, facing calls for him to drop out, said he would “never withdraw” from the race.
