For their visit to Charlotte on Tuesday, President Barack Obama and presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton will travel together on Air Force One, the White House announced Monday.
The president and his former secretary of State will arrive together at 2:25 p.m. at the North Carolina Air National Guard Base, according to the White House press office. They will travel to the Charlotte Convention Center for their first campaign appearance together. The event starts at 3 p.m., and doors open at 1.
The Clinton campaign is picking up the tab for the costs of bringing the president to town, and also paying to rent the Convention Center.
Never miss a local story.
Obama will depart Charlotte by 5:05 p.m., according to the White House press office.
According to the Associated Press, the last time Obama and Clinton traveled together was 2012 when they visited newly democratic Myanmar, a pet-issue of Clinton’s. While Obama and Clinton are only expected to be in Charlotte for a few hours, their schedules leave room for a possible unannounced stop around town that could showcase their personal rapport.
