President Trump will visit North Carolina this weekend for a “Get Out the Vote Rally,” ahead of what is expected to be yet another blowout victory for the 45th president amid the GOP presidential primary election season.

This past Tuesday, Trump soared to victory in the Michigan GOP presidential primary, scoring a massive 42-point win over former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley. He also trounced Haley in her home state last week by a 20-point spread, via data from The New York Times.

In North Carolina, Trump is leading with a comfortable 28-point gap, putting him on track to sweep the state’s primary election on Super Tuesday, via polling data from Capen Analytics.

However, another poll from Morning Consult conducted between January and February showed the 45th president holding a 54-point lead among GOP primary voters over Haley in North Carolina.

The president’s rally in the “Tar Heel State” will be held on Saturday in Greensboro, North Carolina, at the Greensboro Coliseum Complex. He is expected to speak at 2:00 p.m. ET.

Trump will follow his rally with a visit to Richmond, Virginia, for a second rally. This last campaign push will precede next week’s anticipated Super Tuesday, where he is expected to easily sweep to victory in every single state.

With Trump as the presumptive Republican presidential primary nominee, it is unclear if Nikki Haley has any plans to suspend her campaign following Super Tuesday. According to campaign reporter Dylan Wells, in early February, Haley was supposedly poised to launch a “seven-figure national cable and digital buy for the Super Tuesday stretch.”

However, since losing Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada, the Virgin Islands, Michigan, and South Carolina, Haley has lost deep-pocketed donors like Americans for Prosperity (Charles Koch), signaling what appears to be the final moments of her campaign.

Trump Senior Advisor Jason Miller wrote on X, “Birdbrain’s ‘seven-figure’ Super Tuesday media buy ended up only being about $350K. What a joke. She’s finished. I look forward to everyone who wrote up this story to now follow with stories reading ‘Nikki Haley’s campaign is dead and broke.’”

Watch President Donald Trump’s Saturday rallies in North Carolina and Virginia live starting at 11:00 a.m. ET on RSBN.
