President Obama will join Hillary Clinton on the campaign trail next week in the battleground state of North Carolina, the campaign of the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee announced Wednesday. Obama is scheduled to appear alongside Clinton, his former secretary of state, at a rally on Tuesday in Charlotte, the largest city in the Tar Heel State. The Charlotte appearance is a makeup date of sorts for an event that had been in the works earlier in Green Bay, Wis. That was put on hold in the wake of the June 12 mass shooting at a gay nightclub in Orlando. Obama formally endorsed Clinton’s White House bid earlier this month, saying in a video that he had “seen her determination to give every American a fair shot at opportunity, no matter how tough the fight.”
