RALEIGH – With little more than 30 days to go before the election, and North Carolina being such an important state in the presidential race, each day between now and November 3 is bound to feature visits from each campaign.
Lara Trump, a North Carolina native and daughter-in-law of President Donald Trump, has two stops in the Old North State on Monday.
The NCSU graduate will attend a MAGA event Monday evening at Finnegan’s Run Farm in New Hill. The event begins at 6:30 PM, and you can register to attend here.
Tuesday, Lara Trump will make stops at Wake County GOP headquarters and Orange County GOP headquarters.
Also in North Carolina is the bottom of the Democratic presidential ticket, Kamala Harris. Contrary to the Trump events, the Harris events will be available ‘virtually’ for those that want to ‘attend.’
“[…]Harris will first deliver remarks virtually on the U.S. Supreme Court vacancy and filling the job.
During the 2:15 p.m. scheduled discussion, she will also talk about how the Affordable Care Act could be impacted by the election, according to campaign officials.
Around 4:30 p.m. Harris will have a “Sister to Sister meets Shop Talk” roundtable in Raleigh.
Both events will be available for viewing on the Biden/Harris campaign website. […]”
The campaign strategies are quite different, with the Biden/Harris campaign leaning on the Pandemic Panic to organize virtual events. The upside of doing that is that it eliminates the risk of a dreadfully small number of people actually showing up.
The Trump campaign has no such problem; their events routinely fill up with supporters being corralled into overflow areas. They actually have to turn people away.
Such is the contrast in enthusiasm for the respective campaigns.
