RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Republican nominee for vice president Mike Pence is campaigning again in North Carolina, a battleground state running mate Donald Trump probably needs in his column to win the White House this November.

The Indiana governor planned to participate in a “town hall” meeting Thursday morning in downtown Raleigh before heading to campaign events in Norfolk, Virginia, later in the day.

Pence visited the first time as a candidate last week in Winston-Salem during a joint appearance with Trump. Now, he’ll be on his own promoting a Trump presidency and attempting to link President Barack Obama’s policies to Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

Clinton’s running mate, Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine, held a rally Wednesday in Greensboro.
