How many times have Clinton and Trump been to North Carolina? Here’s your answer.

With North Carolina a key swing state, it seems as though we can’t go a week without one of the presidential candidates visiting.

That’s because we can’t.

Since June, Democrat Hillary Clinton has visited the state 10 times. (She stopped in two cities – Raleigh and Charlotte – on Oct. 23 and Raleigh and the Greenville area Thursday.)

And Republican Donald Trump has visited the state 12 times as of Saturday. (On three of those visits, he stopped in two cities on the same day so he’s covered more ground.)

Clinton and Trump have made five stops each in Charlotte. Next on the list: the Triangle. Clinton has been there four times, and Trump’s been there only once (though he has had other stops nearby). Trump has another rally in Raleigh on Monday.

Since Sept. 6, the state has only had one week when neither candidate visited – the week of Sept. 18, when violent protests erupted after the police killing of Keith Lamont Scott.
