As the Democrats get their convention underway in Philadelphia Monday, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump will hold an event of his own in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. The GOP candidate's rally at Winston-Salem's Lawrence Joel Veterans Memorial Coliseum Annexis is scheduled to begin at 8 p.m. EDT.

Trump's competition, presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, spoke in North Carolina Monday ahead of the GOP candidate's event. She addressed some 10,000 veterans at the annual Veterans of Foreign Wars National Convention in Charlotte and seemingly took a shot at Trump in the speech.
"I have confidence. I have optimism. I don't understand people who trash talk about America — who talk about us as being in decline and who act as though we are not yet the greatest country that has ever been on the face of the Earth for all of history," Clinton said, according to WTVD.
North Carolina is considered a state that could go to either candidate come election day in November. The Real Clear Politics average of polls for the state has Clinton ahead by 2 points.
Reports from local media indicated that people began showing up for the Trump event hours before doors were scheduled to open at 5 p.m. For added coverage, local station WGHP has a live blog going here.
Trump is expected to be joined Monday by running mate Mike Pence, North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory and North Carolina Sen. Richard Burr. The New York real estate mogul is scheduled to stay in the Tar Heel state a bit longer after Monday's event with a Tuesday address to the VFW convention crowd.
