McCain to visit Port City Monday


The North Carolina Republican Party said Sen. John McCain will bring his presidential campaign to Wilmington Monday. McCain will hold a town hall meeting at Cape Fear Community College's Schwartz Center.

McCain's visit comes two days before he meets Sen. Barack Obama, the Democratic nominee, in their final debate Wednesday in Hampstead, NY. One-Stop voting in North Carolina begins Thursday.

The NCGOP said free tickets to the event will be available starting at noon Saturday at the party's Wilmington office at 3145 Wrightsville Avenue. They are limited to two per person and will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis. The party said tickets do not guarantee entry to the event Monday, which will also be on a first-come, first-served basis to ticket holders.

A McCain campaign spokesperson told NewsChannel 3 doors at the Schwartz Center will open at Noon Monday, and will close at 2pm - even if people are still standing in line. McCain will take the stage shortly after. Officials recommend getting there early!

This is McCain's first visit to Wilmington since earning the Republican nomination for president. Obama visited UNC Wilmington on May 5, a day before North Carolina's primary and one day after his primary opponent Sen. Hillary Clinton held a rally along the Wilmington Riverwalk.
