Donald Trump to get out the vote in Greensboro

Former President Donald Trump is working to continue establishing his dominance in the Republican Party as he seeks his third GOP nomination for President, following a key win in South Carolina this weekend.

Now he’ll head to North Carolina this Saturday for a get out the vote rally in Greensboro.

The March 2 event will be held at 2 p.m. at the Greensboro Coliseum Complex located at 1921 W. Gate City Blvd. Doors open at 11 a.m.

Trump’s visit comes one day after Vice President Kamala Harris will travel to Durham as part of the Joe Biden administration’s effort to tout its work advancing economic opportunity, uplifting small business and building a strong economy for all Americans.

Trump has still not officially earned the title “presumptive nominee” because former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley has vowed to stay in the fight until at least Super Tuesday.

But Trump has a wide lead not just in polls, but in the GOP nominating contest’s delegate count. Trump has swept every state so far that has held a Primary or caucus, including in Nevada where Haley lost the state’s Primary to “none of these candidates.”

Trump was not on the state’s Primary ballot and instead participated in the party-run caucus, meaning Haley lost the state even without Trump on the ballot. She also lost on Saturday in her home state, which most political watchers viewed as her last hope at salvaging her presidential campaign.

With the South Carolina loss Haley also suffered another political wound — Americans for Prosperity said they were pulling support from the former South Carolina Governor and focusing resources elsewhere. They stood by their endorsement, but indicated funds could be better used in more competitive contests.

North Carolina holds its Primary on Super Tuesday, which is March 5.

Haley campaigned in Michigan Sunday, which holds its Primary on Tuesday.
