Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz will make another trip to North Carolina on Monday with a rally in Fayetteville.

Fayetteville Technical Community College says it will be the site of a 3 p.m. speech by Cruz at Horace Sisk Gymnasium. Cruz appeared on Tuesday at churches in Raleigh and Kannapolis, and he’s scheduled to speak at a rally hosted by his Super PAC at Charlotte Motor Speedway on Sunday afternoon.

Details of the event had not been posted to Cruz’s campaign website as of midafternoon Friday.

Cruz is polling in second place in North Carolina, and because the state isn’t using a winner-take-all system for allocating delegates, the Texas senator probably will add to his delegate total here, even if he doesn’t beat frontrunner Donald Trump.

Cruz’s father, Rafael Cruz, is holding campaign events in Charlotte, Cary, Pinehurst and Greenville over the weekend.

The Cary event with the elder Cruz, who is a pastor, is scheduled for 2 p.m. Saturday at IHOP on Kildaire Farm Road.
