Former President Trump is headlining battleground North Carolina’s state GOP Convention next month, Fox News reports.

Trump will attend the state convention in Greenville on Saturday, June 5, marking his first trip outside Mar-a-Lago since his CPAC address in February.

“President Trump won North Carolina in 2016 by promising to put America First, and he won North Carolina in 2020 by keeping that promise,” North Carolina GOP chair Michael Whatley told Fox News in a statement.

“President Trump delivered real results for North Carolina by rebuilding the military, standing strong against China, and unleashing the American Economy,” Whatley added.

Trump’s first visit comes amid speculation his daughter-in-law, Lara Trump, could run for the vacant Senate seat in the Tar Heel State.
