Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton returns to Charlotte next Thursday for a private fundraiser in Myers Park.

It will be her third Charlotte appearance in the past two months. She appeared with President Barack Obama at the Charlotte Convention Center in July and spoke to the VFW convention three weeks later.

Clinton will headline a fundraiser at the home of Robert Stolz, an equity and real estate investor. The cost to attend is $2,700. A donation of $33,400 or raising $50,000 for the Hillary Victory Fund gets a private reception with the candidate.

Clinton’s visit comes as both campaigns continue to fight for North Carolina.

Her running mate, Sen. Tim Kaine of Virginia, is scheduled to give what the campaign calls “a major national security address” in Wilmington ahead of a Chapel Hill fundraiser Tuesday night.

Republican vice presidential nominee Mike Pence is scheduled to hold a rally Saturday in Fayetteville.
