President Obama and likely Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton will campaign together June 5 in North Carolina, the Clinton campaign announced Wednesday.

During the campaign event in Charlotte, Mr. Obama and Mrs. Clinton “will discuss building on the progress we’ve made and their vision for an America that is stronger together,” the Clinton campaign said.

Mr. Obama endorsed Mrs. Clinton for president earlier this month.

The two were supposed to campaign together in Green Bay, Wisconsin, on June 15, but that event was postponed in light of the Orlando terrorist attack on June 12.

Mr. Obama narrowly carried North Carolina in 2008, but lost the state in 2012 to GOP nominee Mitt Romney. Democrats held their national convention in Charlotte in 2012.
